Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA)

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders in youth, including expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care through gender neutral and culturally relevant content. This 6-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.

This course includes a self-paced component and a live virtual component, with the first 2 hours through a self-paced class, followed by a 4-hour, instructor-led class using videoconferencing technology. The content of this training is based on new curricula that has been in development for more than a year.

YMHFA will include new content applicable for adults working with elementary-age children, including content on the impact of social media.
