What is Youth Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health issues are the leading health issue for young people in Australia. According to research, many young people are not well informed about mental health issues and do not seek help for a variety of reasons. These include:

  • The stigma surrounding mental illness among young people
  • Not realising there is effective, confidential help available
  • Lack of understanding regarding recovery time
  • Embarrassment and feeling ashamed about the inability to cope

Gaining access to help determines the outcome for the young person and in some cases, how quickly they recover.  During this time of their life, a young person is faced with many challenges and changes. Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is an educational course for adults working with young people or parents of young people. It helps you understand the complexity of these changes occurring during this time and the impact on the mental health of young people.
