Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, mentors, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.

The course is taught by David Galvan, a certified trainer in Adverse Childhood Experiences which focuses on trauma informed care. He is also a trainer of QPR (Question. Persuade. Refer), Youth & Teen Mental Health First Aid where he has trained over 1000 individuals and more recently became a trainer and youth & young adult Director/Trainer with Soul Shop, a faith-based initiative that equips faith leaders to minister to those that have been impacted by suicide.
