Join Us December 6, 2019 from 8am-4pm at CalU for Youth Mental Health First Aid!

This is a wonderful FREE training for anyone interested in working with youth! Great Addition to any resume!

 

Youth Mental Health First Aid 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 an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people.

The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.

 

Presented by Dr. Rosalie Smiley and Dr. Michelle Torregano.

Lunch Provided!
