Event description

The Youth Mental Health First Aid Course is for adults working or living with adolescents. The course teaches mental health first aid skills to adults so that they can give initial help to young people experiencing mental health problems, those in a mental health crisis, or those in the early stages of a mental illness. 

Course participants learn about adolescent development, the signs and symptoms of some mental health problems young people can experience (depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse and psychosis), where and how to get help when a young person is developing a mental illness, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.
