Learn the warning signs and how YOU can help! 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 youth who are experiencing mental health or addiction challenges or crises.
