The course teaches adults how to assist adolescents who are developing a mental health problem or are in a mental health crisis.

Course participants learn about adolescent development, the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems in young people, and where and how to get help when a young person is developing a mental illness.

It also teaches what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.
