Course Overview

MHFA Canada: For Adults Who Interact with Youth focuses on mental health problems and first aid for youth ages 12 to 24. Mental health problems often first develop during adolescence or early adulthood, with half of all mental disorders beginning by age 14, and 75 per cent beginning by age 24. MHFA Canada: For Adults Who Interact with Youth has been reviewed by Canadian experts and provides guidelines for giving first aid. MHFA Canada encourages first aiders to take additional training in suicide prevention, physical first aid and dealing with substance-related problems.

Mental Health First Aid for Adults Who Interact with Youth (aged 12-24) is a 14-hour course that discusses the following mental disorders:

  • Mood-related disorders

  • Acute stress reaction

  • Eating disorders

  • Deliberate self-injury

  • Substance-related disorders

  • Anxiety and trauma related disorders

Crisis first aid skills for the following situations are learned:

  • Substance overdose

  • Suicidal behaviour

  • Panic attack

  • Acute stress reaction

  • Psychotic episode

More information, including the course outline, is available at mentalhealthfirstaid.ca.
