Virtual Youth Mental Health First Aid

Next Date: 
Repeats every week 1 times. Also includes Wed Sep 23 2020.


Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is a public education program that introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge.

This blended learning course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder.

Participants are required to complete a two-hour self-paced intro course prior to attending the virtual training. All pre-work and virtual details will be provided to participants one week prior to their training date.
