Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA)

YMHFA teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with an appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the course but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people ages 12-18, teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens. This training is free.

Signs of Suicide (SOS)

Developed to decrease the incidence of suicide amount adolescents, the SOS program will instill knowledge and an adaptive attitude about depression to its participants. The SOS program is designed in a way that encourages individuals to seek help for themselves or on behalf of a friend. The program reduces the stigmas associated with mental health and causes engagement among parents and school faculty to become partners in prevention. The training can range from 1-4 hours and is free.
