Youth Mental Health First Aid

The Youth Mental Health First Aid training program is provided to adult participants, with the goal of raising awareness and education around behavioral health challenges in youth.

Through this interactive training, attendees will learn to identify concerns by better understanding signs and symptoms and risk factors. By focusing on real-life scenarios, participants will develop, and practice, the skills learned to support and intervene in crisis situations.

Trainings are provided virtually and include two hours of self-paced content, followed by a 4.5-hour, instructor-led session held via Zoom.

Thanks to a generous community partner, there is no associated fee for participating in this training.
