Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is training for non-mental health professionals on how to recognize and deal with students, parents and co-workers who might be exhibiting symptoms of a mental disorder. YMHFA aligns with ISBE social emotional learning standards and with the readiness and emergency management phase: prevention and mitigation. Just as CPR training helps a lay person without medical training assists an individual who is not breathing, mental health first aid training is designed to give skills necessary for school staff to assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
