Session Detail


Youth Mental Health First Aid






Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8 hour public education program which 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. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

Important Session Information:


Youth Mental Health First Aid is very strict on participants attending 8 hours.  Absolutely no partial credit given for time missed.

As COVID-19 is changing our daily reality, there is an important need for MHFA to be available virtually. The National Council is pleased to announce that we are preparing to release a virtual Mental Health First Aid course.

First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced class, and then participate in a 4-hour, Instructor-led class using videoconferencing technology.

The virtual training will be based on new curricula that has been in development for more than a year. It includes expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care. Youth MHFA will include new content applicable for adults working with elementary-age children, including content on the impact of social media. The content is gender neutral and culturally relevant.

We thank you for choosing to #BeTheDifference and hope that you are staying safe and healthy during this difficult time.
