Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is an evidence-based training that increases awareness and reduces stigma of mental health. YMHFA prepares individuals to react and respond to mental health issues and crisis in young people.
A mental health emergency can present itself at any time. YMHFA strives to teach members of the public how to respond and offer support to a young person who appears to be in emotional distress.
Educators, parents, coaches, clergy, behavioral health professionals, youth workers, administrators, public health workers, criminal justice providers, and community members should attend.
Participants will leave with the ability to:
-Evaluate a situation through a five-step action plan of assessing, listening, giving reassurance and information, and encouraging professional help.
-Select and implement interventions and secure appropriate care for individuals.
-Realize the risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems.
-Recognize the impact of mental health problems.
-Understand the basic treatment referral process.
