YMHFA teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use challenges among children and adolescents ages 6-18.

The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:
* Assess for risk of suicide or harm.

* Give reassurance and information.
*Encourage appropriate professional help.
* Encourage self-help and other support strategies
