Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 8-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.


What it covers:

  • Common signs and symptoms of mental illnesses in this age group, including anxiety, depressions and eating disorders                
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Common signs and symptoms of substance use
  • How to interact with an adolescent in crisis
  • How to connect the adolescent with help 

The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
  • Listen nonjudgmentally
  • Give reassurance and information   
  • Encourage appropriate professional help
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

Target audience:  teachers, school staff/administrators, coaches, camp counselors, youth group leaders and anyone who works with youth.
