 June 1, 2020 Youth Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is an eight-hour course that gives non-behavioral health specialists the skills to help someone who is in emotional crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy, helping the public to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and emotional stress.

Just as CPR training helps a person with no clinical training assist an individual following a heart attack, mental health first aid training helps a person assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis, such as contemplating suicide. In both situations, the goal is to help support an individual until appropriate professional help arrives. Mental health first aiders learn a single five-step strategy that includes assessing risk, respectfully listening to and supporting the individual in crisis, and identifying appropriate professional help and other supports. Participants are also introduced to risk factors and warning signs for mental health or substance use problems, and they engage in experimental activities that building understanding of the impact of illness on individuals and families and learn about evidence-supported treatment and self-help strategies.
