teen Mental Health First Aid

Mar 27, 2024

teen Mental Health First Aid (tMHFA) is a national, evidence-based program that teaches high school students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades how to identify, understand, and help their friends experiencing mental health and substance use challenges, and how to get the help of an adult quickly.

During the 2019-2020 school year, White Swan High School was the only school in Washington State to participate in the teen Mental Health First Aid pilot, implementing the program with all of the school’s 10th grade students. This year marks our first post-COVID implementation.
