Introduction:

Adolescence is a time of important change and development. It is also the time when mental health problems can first emerge. During high school years, mental health problems are among the leading causes of falling grades, problems with friends, and relationships, substance use or abuse and they can have lifelong impact. That's where Mental Health First Aid training can help.

With a focus on improved mental health literacy and early intervention, Youth MHFA is for adults who work, live or care for adolescents such as teachers, school support staff, parents, sports coaches, community group leaders and youth workers.

WHY CHOOSE YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING?

The course equips adults with the skills to recognise and respond to an adolescent who may be experiencing a mental health problem or crisis situation. Using a practical, evidence-based action plan,

Youth MHFA teaches participants how to support an adolescent until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
