Youth Mental Health First Aid (ISCA 302-11)
This course has been developed by National Council for Behavioral Health.“ Let’s make mental health first aid as common as CPR.”
Youth Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include depression and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychosis and substance use disorders.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. An important component of the Youth Mental Health First Aid course is the opportunity to practice the intervention strategy rather than to just learn about it. This simple experience can make it easier to actually apply the knowledge in a real-life situation.
