Youth Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training for anyone dealing with adolescents (12-18), and especially valuable for parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, coaches, peers, neighbors, health workers, and other caring citizens who might interface with an adolescent experiencing a mental health or addictions crisis. 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. This training is open anyone who regularly interacts with adolescents, and to the general community.

All attendees receive a certificate of attendance for completing the 8-hour course.
