Teen Mental Health First Aid

We’re pleased to bring Teen Mental Health First Aid (TMHFA) to our communities!  TMHFA teaches high school students about common mental health challenges and what they can do to support their own mental health and help a friend who is struggling. It’s equipping young people with the knowledge and skills they need to foster their own wellness and to support each other.  

The National Council for Behavioral Health has teamed up with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation to bring this program to the United States.Taught in person or virtually, TMHFA is a part of a larger effort at Josselyn to support our teens!  Founded by visionary child psychiatrist, Irene Josselyn, MD, youth mental health has been at the bedrock of everything we do for 70 years.
