Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Sometimes First Aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911. Sometimes First Aid is YOU!
Why Youth Mental Health First Aid?
Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 8-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
