Mental Health First Aid (Youth)

VIRTUAL Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health challenge, addictions challenge, or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders. Training is approximately one day or 8 hours that can be delivered in two four hour days. Participants will receive a participant manual.

 

This training is for how to best help YOUTH.

This requires 2 hours approximately of pre-work before date of training and must be completed to take the rest of the training
