Why Youth Mental Health First Aid?

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 6-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages

    • Anxiety

    • Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
    • Common signs and symptoms of substance use
  • How to interact with a child or adolescent in crisis
  • How to connect the person with help
  • New: Expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care and the impact of social media and bullying

What is the Virtual Workshop Format:

First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online course, and then participate in a live, instructor-led video workshop.
