A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone - friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community - in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 - teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens. 

Dates of YOUTH trainings (all sessions are 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)
