Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

I CARE 
offers Youth Mental Health First Aid, a framework for providing immediate help and support to a young person who may be experiencing a mental health challenge due to a mental disorder or crisis. The eight hour training takes place over two days. Day One focuses on the prevalence of mental health disorders among young people and the symptoms associated with anxiety; depression; ADHD and other disruptive behaviors; substance abuse; eating disorders; psychosis; self-injury; and suicide. Day Two concentrates on using the five-step Mental Health Action Plan to assess the needs of youth in distress and to implement appropriate interventions for both crisis and non-crisis situations. Youth Mental Health First Aid training is suitable for parents, faculty, DARE and School Resource Officers, youth-serving agencies, and other adult community members who are concerned about the welfare of adolescents and teens. 

Trainers: Maureen Laurent, Erin Bradford
