Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage .... or CPR .... or the Heimlich .... or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU!
A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. YOU can help them.
You are more likely to encounter someone—friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community—in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5‐step action plan to offer inial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self‐help care. Anyone can take the 8‐hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12‐18—teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities social workers, and other caring citizens.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you.
Take the course, save a life. Strengthen your community.
