This two-session program introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in 12- to 18-year-olds. The course builds understanding of the importance of early intervention and teaches individuals how to help youth 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.
You must attend both sessions to become certified.+ More... - Less...
