Youth Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to someone who is developing a mental health problem, has a worsening of an existing mental health problem or is in a mental health crisis.

The Youth Mental Health First Aid course is for adults working or living with adolescents (those aged between 12 and 18 years), however, the course can be relevant for those helping people who are a little younger or older. This course is particularly suitable for parents, teachers, sports coaches, and youth workers.

Participants cover:

  • Signs and symptoms of mental health problems in young people
  • Where and how to get help when someone is developing a mental illness
  • What sort of help has been shown by research to be effective
  • How to provide first aid in a crisis situation

Delivered by Mental Health First Aid Australia qualified instructors in a supportive and collaborative learning environment, expect to take away valuable skills and knowledge that may support you in the workplace, your community and beyond.
