Cancelled-Youth Mental Health First Aid Workshop - Fairmont



Youth Mental Health First Aid Training:

The Youth Mental Health First Aid program is an international program that reviews the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents ages 12-18. It emphasizes the importance of early intervention and covers how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. The youth course is intended for anyone16 years or older to learn how to help young people. YMHFA uses role-playing, simulations, active discussion and videos to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis. Participants do not learn to diagnose nor how to provide any therapy or counseling. Rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of mental illness or in an emotional crisis.

 -Each participant receives a manual to keep that is filled with resources, tips, tools, etc.
