Youth Mental Health First Aid

Welcome to YMHFA at The College of New Jersey!

We offer Youth Mental Health First Aid courses in Mercer County and beyond. Our aim is to reduce stigma and barriers associated with seeking and receiving appropriate mental health services for all. We continue to provide Youth Mental Health and Mental Health First aid free of charge to communities throughout New Jersey thanks to a federal SAMHSA grant.  This important training can be done face-to-face or in hybrid formats with flexible scheduling to accommodate as many constituents as possible.  Those interested in hosting a training can reach out to Stuart Roe at

New in 2023, we will begin offering more intensive, Mental Health Facilitator training, through a partnership with the National Board for Certified Counselors.  The training provides community-based education regarding mental health and strategies for awareness and support.  Please see future announcements for opportunities to participate.
