LET’S MAKE MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID AS COMMON AS CPR.
Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is a FREE eight-hour public education program that builds understanding of the importance of early intervention and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE? Adults who regularly interact with youth…Teachers, School Staff, Coaches, Church and Youth Group Leaders, Childcare Workers, Parents, Social Workers, Hospital Staff, Law Enforcement, Employers, etc. WHAT WILL PARTICIPANTS LEARN? You can be the one to make a difference because you’ll know… what to do and what to say when you see a youth struggling with mental and emotional challenges; risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents; how to apply what you learn by practicing in class using role-playing and simulations; real-life responses to challenging situations. You’ll receive a workbook, certified training hours for continuing education, and certification in Mental Health First Aid from the National Council on Behavioral Wellbeing. There is no charge for the course thanks to our generous donors, but RSVP is required due to limited seats (25 per workshop).
