Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 8-hr (2-hour, self-paced online course, and then a 6-hour, instructor-led virtual course or in-person) training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. This course is valued at $170. Thanks to the generous support of the Vermont Department of Health, the course is offered at a reduced cost of $30 per participant.
