that 64.1% of youth with major depression do not receive any mental health treatment?
1 in 5 teens and young adults lives with a mental health condition?
What: Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 6-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
When: This course will be offered in two parts. The first part is offered online in a self-study format. This will take about 2 hours and needs to be completed before the live session. The second part will be offered live and virtually via a Zoom connection. This session will be held January 27th from 9am-2pm. You will receive the link for the self-paced session and Zoom info for the live session after you have registered.
