Youth Mental Health First Aid

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis. First aiders learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of mental illnesses and addictions and connect youth with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Adults working with youth are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Sometimes, the best first aid is you.

Space is limited. Registration is $20. Certification requires attendance at both 4 hour sessions on February 10 and 17.
