That is why it is so important for all adults working with teens to take Youth Mental Health First Aid, a training that teaches participants how to help adolescents experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. Having more informed Youth Ministers can dramatically help early intervention efforts and get youth the help they need when they need it.
Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 6-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
