Youth Mental Health First Aid
Take a course. Change a life.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a comprehensive training specifically designed to equip educators, family members, and caregivers (18 years or older) 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.

REGISTER: Youth Mental Health First Aid is offered monthly throughout Santa Barbara County. SIGN UP early because courses will fill up. Let us know if you would like to coordinate a private class for 20 people to train in your organization, church, or group. The course is available in English. The virtual course will be offered in Spanish in 2021. Questions? Email educationmwc@gmail.com

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