Youth Mental Health First Aid

Do you know how to recognize the signs of mental illness in a young person?
Would you know how to respond if you did?
What if there was something you could do to help youth in your community?


Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is a basic public education program that teaches individuals how to help a youth in crisis or experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. Using an interactive format, this 8-hour course utilizes role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis, provide initial help, and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.


  • Risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder.

  • A core five-step action plan to support an adolescent developing signs and symptoms of mental illness or in an emotional crisis.
