Youth Mental Health First Aid is a national best-practice, evidence-based certification course designed to help adults identify, understand, and respond to crisis and non-crisis mental health situations involving youth and teens (age 12-18). This training provides information on common mental health challenges in youth, skills for holding supportive conversations and connecting youth to appropriate professional care, and local and national resources for additional support. We encourage all youth-serving adults — school staff, agency staff, parents/caregivers, volunteers, and community members — to participate and become a well-equipped resource for the young people in your personal and professional lives.
This free, public training will be held via Zoom. *Participants must register below and complete 2 hours of pre-course work before attending. You will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours of your registration with instructions for accessing the pre-work. We are pleased to offer this training to participants located in Maine.
