Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) Trainings
Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is an 8 hour public education program which 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 individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. YMHFA uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.
The Colorado Department of Education through Project AWARE grant funds can offer a limited number of YMHFA trainings at no cost. Click the link below to request a training.
