HEAL-1047Mental Health First Aid - Youth

Learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health issues in youth, to provide initial help and to guide youth toward appropriate support.

The Mental Health First Aid for Adults who Interact with Youth (MHFA) training course was developed to help people provide initial support to youth aged 12 to 24 who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA Canada teaches mental health first aid skills. The course does not train people to be therapists, counsellors or mental health professionals, but if crises do arise, members of the public can take action that may reduce the harm that could result.
