Youth Mental Health First Aid
Blended Course






This course teaches the participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents including depression, anxiety, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders and substance use disorder.

Important Session Information:


Outside of the student’s home, schools are the most likely place where mental health concerns will be detected. Fortunately, the earlier mental health concerns are detected and addressed, the more likely a student is to avoid the onset and/or progression of mental illness. Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach teachers, school staff, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent who is experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge or is in crisis.

This Blended Course includes 2 hours of self-paced online pre-work that must be completed prior to attended the 5.5 hour in-person portion of the class held at Region 8 ESC.
