Do you know the warning signs for teens or tweens in crisis?

Youth Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds an understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis, select intervention, provide initial help, and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help.

  • $50 per person
  • kosher breakfast and lunch included
  • class size limited to 25

The course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorders.

Please note that you must attend all 8 hours of the course in order to receive your certificate from the National Council for Behavioral Health.
