Mental Health First Aid


01/31/2015 - 01/31/3000
All Day


“The course was a mix of books/assignments and role-playing. We became aware of the do’s and don’ts of being a responder and the affects of mental illness on individuals and their families. It’s a quite a program; I’ve learned so much about the feelings of individuals and how to offer assistance. It was well worth the time!”

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training: Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for adults whom regularly interact with adolescents, but may also be appropriate for older adolescents (16 and older) to encourage youth peer-to-peer interaction. Anyone who regularly works or interacts with youth – teachers, athletic coaches, mentors, juvenile justice professionals – may find the course content useful. The core Mental Health First Aid course has been successfully offered to a variety of audiences including hospital staff, employers and business leaders, faith communities, law enforcement, and the general public.

Journey Mental Health Center offers both Adult Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid as community classes and on-site courses for schools, businesses and other organizations.
