About this Event

Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8-hour public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

Within this course, you will learn:

  • Risk factors and warning signs of mental health challenges common among youth and adolescents
  • A 5-step action plan to help youth and adolescents developing a mental health problem or in crisis
  • Inform youth, adolescents, and their families of local support available in their communities

If you are a parent, teacher, coach, or youth service provider we highly recommend that you take this course.
