This class will focus on issues pertaining to camp counselors but anyone is invited to attend.

Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is a comprehensive, online training that teaches educators, family members, and caregivers (18+ years old) to approach, assess, and assist a young person with a mental health challenge or substance use concern.

Just as CPR or First Aid helps you assist an individual in a medical crisis by following specific steps, YMHFA helps you assist a young person experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis using specific steps until appropriate help is received or until the crisis is resolved.

YMHFA is an evidence-based curriculum that teaches participants how to recognize and respond to signs and symptoms of a mental health challenge in youth while addressing the role of resilience and the impact of traumatic experiences on adolescent development.

The course consists of two components: (1) a self-paced introduction to YMHFA and a Zoom tutorial completed prior to the online course, and (2) a 5-hour online session lead by certified instructors focuses on teaching the application of skills that will allow adults to become certified Youth Mental Health First Aiders. Registration deadline is 2 weeks prior to class start date.

Participants completing the course receive a 3-year certification from the National Council for Behavioral Health.
