Content is applicable for adults working with youth (age 12-18). It is designed to teach basic first aid skills needed to help a young person who is experiencing a mental health challenge, mental health crisis, addictions challenge and other stressors. The course covers adolescent development, common mental illnesses, substance use and a 5-step action plan. It is not intended for professionals who have a background in mental health.
