Youth Mental Health First Aid

  • Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members,
    caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services
    workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who
    is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth
    Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly
    interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health
    challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a
    5-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
    (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.
