MHFA Canada for Adults Who Interact with Youth focuses on mental health problems and first aid for youth ages 12 to 24. Mental health problems often first develop during adolescence or early adulthood, with half of all mental disorders beginning by age 14, and 75 percent beginning by age 24. Most mental disorders develop gradually. The early signs and symptoms of developing mental health problems will be different from the more established clinical profiles which are reflected later in life. The social, educational, and familial environments in which mental disorders occur in young people are also different from those later in life. Therefore, the information in this course is designed to be sensitive to and assist the unique aspects of mental health problems in young people. It is meant to assist education professionals, health providers, parents, and other adults in the identification of mental health problems and appropriate first aid intervention strategies.
