To learn more about how to help a young person who may be at risk, take one of our free, online training courses.

The CSB also provides Youth Mental Health First Aid and general Mental Health First Aid courses in English and Spanish.

If you are a doctor, nurse or other medical care provider, take our free, online courses to enhance skills for identifying depression and suicide risk and other mental health concerns.
