Youth Mental Health First Aid
The Youth Mental Health First Aid course is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help a youth who is experiencing a mental health or an addiction challenge or crisis.
The training introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a five-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. We will use role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to recognize and respond to the warning signs and symptoms of specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and substance use disorders.
YES’ 8-hour certificate summer course is only on one day for convenience.
The course cost is $75 which includes a training manual and lunch
