Check back often to see our progress.

1/2 of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14, three-quarters by age 24.

Mental disorders can have a major impact as they often start in adolescence or early adulthood. When mental disorders start at this stage of life, they can affect the young person's education, movement into adult occupational roles, and the formation of key social relationships and health habits. 

But... there is something we can do about it! 

 why are we offering these services? 

We believe that Mental health First Aid should be as common as CPR and traditional First Aid used for physical scrapes, injury and trauma. We also recognize that as adults who regularly interact with youth, it is our responsibility to aid them to the best of our ability. 

Youth Mental health First Aid

An 8-hour class for adults who regularly interact with youth. The objective is to raise your awareness as an expert observer and give you greater insight as to when to get involved. 

Participants who complete the 8-hour course will receive certification in Youth Mental Health First Aid.
