What is Mental Health First Aid?

Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis.

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid is a program designed to help the general public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. It is intended for a variety of audiences: friends and family of individuals with mental illness, key professionals, school leadership, faith communities, or ANYONE interested in learning about mental illness.

This eight-hour course presents an overview of mental health and introduces its participants to the warning signs of mental illness and provides them with the knowledge and skills needed to help stabilize a person in crisis until they can connect them with the appropriate care. Just as CPR training helps a layperson with no clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental crisis, such as contemplating suicide. In both situations, the goal is to support the individual until professional help arrives.

The goal of Mental Health First Aid is intended to increase mental health literacy and teach everyone to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness.

Continuing Education Units are available for educators, counselors, social workers, and law enforcement.
