Youth Mental Health First Aid

Join the movement in Santa Barbara County to strengthen our community.
Because we can all be more aware and more informed.

Take a course. Change a life.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a comprehensive training specifically designed to equip educators, family members, and caregivers with the skills and knowledge to identify, understand, and respond to the signs or risk factors of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth.

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis.  PRINT FLYER [ENGLISH] >>   PRINT FLYER [SPANISH] >>
