Teachers, Administrators, Supervisors, Parents, Family Members, and Caregivers of children of all ages.
The Youth Mental Health First Aid workshop 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 children experiencing mental health concerns or addiction challenges or who are in crisis. 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. MHFA training is an evidence-based practice which has been demonstrated to reduce stigma and provides laypeople that have no mental health background with the tools to help people in their communities.
