Mental Health First Aid for Adults who Interact with Youth (Public Session) In-Person

Mental health problems begin sooner than we think.

Mental Health First Aid for Adults who Interact with Youth focuses on the basics, and more specifically on mental health problems and first aid for young persons aged 12-24.

This is an evidence-based training by the Mental Health Commission of Canada designed for adults who may be teachers, social workers, counsellors, law enforcement and first responders, parents and family members, coaches, babysitters, healthcare providers and community leaders.

Sponsored by the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region and the Imagine Institute for Learning to support the mental health of Alberta’s youth population.

Aims of the 14-Hour Course:

  1. Recognize the symptoms of mental health problems as they develop in youth, including eating disorders and non-suicidal self-injury.
  2. Provide initial help when facing a mental health problem or crisis.
  3. Guide youth and/or adults who support them towards appropriate professional help.
  4. Learn how to accommodate young people who are in distress or are recovering from a crisis.


Free Training for a limited time only while resources available.
