About this course:
Mental Health First Aid for Adults Assisting Youth (YMHFA) teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 7-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and connect them to the appropriate care.
Participants must complete 2 hours of self-paced training at least 3 days prior to the course date.
The 5-hour portion of the course is a small group-interactive training. Participants will join via Zoom and should be prepared to be present and actively engaged for the whole course.
