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 $25.00 registration fee includes a workbook, refreshments, and lunch. Checks should be made payable to RACSB with “Mental Health First Aid” in the memo line.
