Brief Summary:
MHFA course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals. The course equips adults with the skills to recognize 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. Providing Youth Mental Health First Aid training can help whole communities to: INTERVENE EARLY Recognize the warning signs of mental health problems in young people.
