What is Youth Mental Health First Aid?
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.
This workshop is being offered for free and lunch will be provided.

In this workshop we will discuss the difference between stress, anxiety and trauma; how each one wires and effects the brain; and tools that help us to repair, grow and thrive. Participants will learn grounding strategies and self-reflection techniques that help us get a grip on stress, and mindfulness and self-care tips so you can keep it. Information in this workshop is useful for adults as well as the children they care for and teach.
