Youth Mental Health First Aid is a mental health literacy program designed to teach adults a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people facing mental health challenges or in crisis situations as well as connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-care they need.

This free course is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, police officers, youth group leaders, parents, and other caring citizens. The interactive curriculum teaches participants the 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 disorders.
