Youth Mental Health First Aid trains individuals to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. It is an eight-hour training certification course that teaches participants a five-step action plan to assess a situation, select and implement interventions and secure appropriate care for the individual. The certification program introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and overviews common treatments.

Like First Aid or CPR training, the Mental Health First Aid program teaches individuals skills they can use to help someone in a crisis and know how to direct them to professional intervention or care. Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based program now available across the U.S. and around the world.
