Training Overview Description

Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.

This course has a cost/value of $85 each and has been fully funded for all participants by the State of Alaska Department of Education & Early Development through the federal project A.W.A.R.E. (Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education) through September 30, 2019.
