Youth Mental Health First Aid is an 8 hour course designed for adults who work with youth between the ages of 12-25.
You will learn:
- What you might SEE in a youth struggling with a mental health challenge
- What you might DO to assist a youth
- A five step action plan that will help you support youth
Just like CPR and First Aid training prepares you for a physical emergency, YMHFA prepares you for a mental health challenge.
