Youth Mental Health First Aid

1 in 5 teens and young adults report living with a mental health condition. If you are an adult who interacts with youth (ages 6-18), this 6-hour, virtual course introduces common mental health challenges for youth and reviews typical adolescent development. You will learn a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. The updated virtual curriculum includes expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care and the impact of social media and bullying. Participants must register two-weeks prior to the course and must complete two-hours of self-paced course pre-work prior to the start date of the program. 

Upcoming classes are scheduled for March 30, April 21, May 19, and June 17, 2021. All scheduled classes will be held virtually, from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Registration closes two weeks prior to the event date. Private classes are available to interested groups as well. 

Register online.
