Youth Mental Health First Aid
Learn how to assist adolescents who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE YOUTH MHFA COURSE
Adolescence is a time of important change and development. It is also the time when mental health problems can first emerge.
During high school years, mental health problems are among the leading causes of falling grades, problems with friends, and relationships, substance use or abuse and they can have lifelong impact.
That’s where Mental Health First Aid training can help.
With a focus on improved mental health literacy and early intervention, Youth MHFA is for adults who work, live or care for adolescents such as teachers, school support staff, parents, sports coaches, community group leaders and youth workers.
