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. 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. MHFA virtual trainings are best experience on a laptop or personal computer and require the completion of both the 2 hour self-paced webinar AND the 5.5 hour Instructor-Led training session to receive the 3-year national certification.
