« back to classes page

Mental Health First Aid for Adults Who Interact with Youth focuses on mental health problems and first aid for youth ages 12 to 24. Mental health problems often first develop during adolescence or early adulthood, with half of all mental disorders beginning by age 14, and 75 per cent beginning by age 24.  This course teaches first aid skills to help someone who is experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. This interactive workshop teaches practical skills using a five step model that is easy to remember and apply in real life settings. The course also provides information about depression, anxiety disorders, psychosis, eating disorders, self-harming behaviors and substances related disorders. Anyone who is interested or may come in contact with individuals dealing with a mental health problem or crisis can benefit from this class. Each participant will receive a certificate upon completion.
This class is facilitated by Canadian Mental Health.
