MHFA Adults who Interact with Youth is intended for an adult audience whose primary focus is youth (aged 14-25). In addition to the four most common disorders discussed in MHFA BASIC, this course includes instruction about eating disorders and deliberate self-injury. Participants who take this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with the young people in their lives, including at schools, extra-curricular activities, social services, family, friends, and communities.
In the MHFA course, you will gain a solid understanding of the 5 basic actions of ALGEE:
- Assess the risk of suicide and/or harm
- Listen non-judgmentally
- Give reassurance
- Encourage professional support
- Encourage other supports
ALGEE is the framework for having a confident conversation about mental health with family, friends, colleagues, and strangers.
