Youth Mental Health First Aid is a specialist two day program that provides participants with the knowledge and skills to assist young people experiencing a mental health crisis. This program is accredited by Mental Health First Aid Australia. On completion of the two day program students may complete an online testing component in order to obtain accreditation. The 14-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid Course is for adults working or living with adolescents (those aged between approximately 12 and 18 years). However, the course can be relevant for those helping people who are a little younger or older. This course is particularly suitable for parents, school staff, sports coaches, and youth workers. The course curriculum is evidence-based, as informed by the MHFA Guidelines. Research has found this course to be effective. Specifically, a study found that participants who complete the course have improved knowledge of mental illnesses and their treatments, knowledge of appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in providing mental health first aid, as well as reduced stigma.
