Please join us to become certified in Mental Health First Aid Youth. This two day course, a program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada, builds on participants existing skills to increase comfort and confidence in working with students and youth (ages 12-24) experiencing mental health problems, such as, depression, anxiety, deliberate self-harm and/or psychosis. Mental health problems often first develop during adolescence or early adulthood, with half of all mental health problems beginning by age 14, and 75 per cent beginning by age 24. Learn to spot the signs and symptoms of potential common mental health problems and how to respond with the five basic actions of mental health first aid. Participants will learn and practice the principles and basic skills of Mental Health First Aid Youth.
