Virtual – Mental Health First Aid Class – Adults Assisting Youth
This is a no-cost Youth Mental Health First Aid Class funded by the Hayes Family Foundation.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is a groundbreaking prevention program. The course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges that are common among adolescents and young adults. YMHFA is implemented around the U.S. and the world. Research has shown that the training enhances behavioral health literacy, reduces stigma, increases knowledge of professional and self-help resources, increases participants’ confidence helping in a crisis situation, and improves behavioral health of participants.
You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify someone experiencing a mental health crisis and connect them with help.
