Youth Mental Health First Aid Training (NH DOE) [May 2019]

PictureYouth Mental Health First Aid USA is a public education program that introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches adult individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Youth Mental Health First Aid uses group activities and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, and self-help care.

To build the skills of youth-serving adults in NH during Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, the NH Department of Education’s Office of Social & Emotional Wellness is offering Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings regionally.

Trainings are FREE to participants through federal funding.
