Youth Mental Health First Aid Course

Thursday, December 7, 2017

This free 8 hour course teaches adults who interact with adolescents the unique risk factors and warning signs of common mental health problems in adolescents including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, substance use disorder, and disruptive behavior disorder and gain an understanding of the importance of early intervention. As certified Youth Mental Health First Aiders, adults will possess a strong awareness of the mental health challenges facing youth in our community and greater confidence in their ability to approach and assist young people developing signs of a mental health challenge, substance use or an emotional crisis.
