Licensed Youth MHFA Courses
Young people often fall victim to unidentified and untreated mental health issues that others assume are just part of growing up. Sometimes they are. Other times, however, there are more serious issues in play that require attention.
Our Youth MHFA Courses are specifically designed to teach you to recognize the difference between ‘growing pains’ and mental health issues in young people. They also provide you with the tools to potentially intervene in productive ways ranging from non-judgemental listening to guiding the young person to more comprehensive professional help.
