About this Event

9/26 and 9/28: Mental Health First Aid gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use challenge and help connect them to the appropriate care.  The Youth Mental Health First Aid course is for anyone who works with or have youth in their life.  It is not designed for youth to take under the age of 16.

The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
  • Listen nonjudgmentally
  • Give reassurance and information
  • Encourage appropriate professional help
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

Course Format:
Participants must complete 2-hours of self-paced training at least 3 days prior to the course date.
The 4-hour portion of the course is a small group-interactive training. Participants will join via Zoom and should be prepared to be present and actively engaged for the whole course.
