Youth Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based training for adults who work with or care about young people. The training covers mental health and substance use disorders in youth, how to recognize signs of these disorders, and how to support and connect youth to more help in a crisis and non-crisis situations.

Much like CPR teaches us to respond to a physical health crisis, Mental Health First Aid teaches us to respond to a mental health crisis.
Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and connect them to the appropriate care.
More Adult and Youth Mental Health First Aid dates have been released for the first quarter of the year! Open to all extension and those who work and live in Wisconsin. This will be most likely the final time that we will offer these statewide open trainings for no cost under our SAMHSA grant.
