We offer an eight-hour training to help adults who interact regularly with adolescents ages 12-18 recognize and respond to mental health emergencies. The Youth Mental Health First Aid curriculum is appropriate for parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, clergy and coaches. 

Through role-playing and simulations, participants gain skills to offer assistance in a mental health crisis. Participants will learn the common mental health challenges faced by youth, typical adolescent development and five-step action plans to help. Topics will include anxiety, depression, substance abuse, disruptive behavior disorders, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

 The $25 registration fee includes a workbook, refreshments, and lunch. Checks should be made payable to RACSB with “Mental Health First Aid” in the memo line.

Register online here. For questions, please contact Jennifer Bateman, Prevention Specialist, at 540-374-3337 or jbateman@rappahannockareacsb.org.
