Youth Mental Health First Aid Course

Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8 hour public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The course certifies participants in Youth Mental Health First Aid for three years. 

The registration fee is $65 and covers the certification, a training manual, and lunch. Eight hours of Educator, LMFT, LPC and MSW CEUs are available for an additional $15.
