Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) Training Request Form
Involving eight hours of intensive instruction and hands-on application, YMHFA teaches adults how to identify and assist a youth with a mental health problem. Utilizing a five-step action plan, participants learn how to access for risk of suicide or harm, listen nonjudgmentally, give reassurance and information, encourage appropriate professional help, and encourage self-help and other support strategies. In addition, participants are provided information on how to effectively navigate the youth mental health resources available in Greater Cincinnati.

Certified Youth Mental Health First Aiders leave training with a stand alone, evidence-based, “toolkit” that provides the community with a common framework, language and knowledge-base to create and implement a support plan for youth experiencing a mental disorder or in crisis.

Grant Funded Opportunity in Hamilton County
In 2015, Mental Health America was awarded a grant from the Substance Abuse Mental Services Administration (SAMHSA) to further develop Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) in Hamilton County. Over the next three years, MHA will be working to increase mental health literacy, increase capacity of adults equipped to respond to the behavioral health issues of youth, link youth to services and increase collaborative partnerships with youth serving agencies. This grant will enable us to reach more teachers, families and community members and is big step toward our goal of expanding YMHFA across our region. This grant will also help reach the national goals to train 3 million people by 2020 and to make Mental Health First Aid as common as First Aid and CPR. There is no cost to attendees for this course, normally $170 per person, due to the SAMHSA Aware Community grant awarded to Mental Health America of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio
