Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

In an era of increasing anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges, join us for an empowering training that builds familiarity and skills to support young people in your community.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a free, eight-hour course designed for adults who regularly interact with youth, such as parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens. The training gives attendees the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing mental health or substance challenges, or who are in crisis. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a five-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders and eating disorders.
