Mental Health First Aid (Youth)
Mental Health First Aid 2.0 is a virtual offering of the original Mental Health First Aid course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.
In Mental Health First Aid 2.0, participants will need to complete a 2-hour, self-paced class online BEFORE participating in the 5 hour Instructor-led class using videoconferencing technology. Details for this will provided to registrants at least four days prior to the Instructor-led class.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. It teaches how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a challenge or is in crisis.
