Who should take the Youth MHFA course?

The course is designed for adults who regularly interact with adolescents, such as, teachers, coaches, mentors, and juvenile justice professionals. In addition, the course may also be appropriate for older adolescents age 16 and older who may be able to encourage youth peer-to-peer interaction.

IMPORTANT: Youth Mental Health First Aid is not specifically designed for parents of youth with mental health challenges. Although parents and families may find the course content useful, the course provides a basic level of information and guidance, rather than more in-depth information on navigating the healthcare system, which parents may wish to explore.
