Mental Health in Lexington

Youth mental health is an important issue in Lexington. In 2017, residents were encouraged to enroll in an 8-hour course to become certified in youth mental health first aid. The course was geared toward any adults that spend time with youth on a daily basis, such as teachers or parents. 

The course taught adults how to identify youth substance use and mental health issues. Participants also learned a five-step action plan for supporting young people in a mental health crisis. In addition to substance abuse, the course also covered self-harm, anxiety, eating and food issues, and depression.
