A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help!
You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor or member of the community – in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack.
Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self-help care.
This course is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 – teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers and other caring citizens. College Students and High School Seniors are also encouraged to take the course.
