Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 8-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 help connect them to the appropriate care.
First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online class, and then participate in a 6-hour, Instructor-led videoconference
This training is suitable for any adult working with youth.
Space is limited. Registration will close once the training is full or on Monday, December 4, 2023!
