Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Tuesday April 16 & April 23 9:00am to 1:00pm. Must attend both days for certification.
Sometimes first aid is you! A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them. Youth Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that teaches a 5-step action plan to introduce participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents. The 8-hour training also builds understanding of the importance of early intervention and teaches individuals how to help a youth in crisis.
Learn from the best in the business. Certified trainers Steven Frausto, LCSW and Karla Sanchez, LCSW of The Guidance Center will teach this course to community members on how to identify mental health problems in youth. Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based training program to help citizens in crisis, connect them with care, and safely de-escalate the situation if needed. In other words help friends, family members, colleagues, or others in the community!
