Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA)

Ten years ago the National Behavioral Health Council embarked on a mission

to change the conversation about mental illness through the Mental Health First Aid program. At its core, YMHFA aims to decrease the stigma surrounding mental illness and negative perceptions of adolescence. Rather than adolescence being some sort of pathology that needs to be overcome, participants are asked to work through interactive activities to identify the strengths of young people, as well as, recognize warning signs of mental health challenges and crises. While YMHFA does not teach an adult to diagnose or treat mental illness, the program equips them to be first aiders in time of a mental health crisis. Similar in concept to CPR training, YMHFA instructs participants to follow an action plan in order to respond appropriately to non-crisis and crises situations until professional help is obtained. Topics addressed in the course include: anxiety, depression, substance use, psychosis, ADHD, and eating disorders.


The YMHFA course is 8 hours in length, and participants earn a certificate upon completion. If your school, organization, agency or faith community is interested in hosting the program, trainers can be sought out in your area to facilitate the program, or as an individual, you can join an already scheduled training. To find a trainer or course in your area visit: http://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/cs/take-a-course/ and join the other 7, 771 youth first aiders in our state to change the narrative.
