Event description:

More often, the type of first aid our youth need isn’t

a bandage,

or CPR,                                           

or the Heimlich,             

or calling 911.

Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

A young person you know could be experiencing

a mental health challenge or crisis.

You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member,

student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional

or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental

Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to

young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis,

and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social,

or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health

First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with

young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders

of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.
