Youth Mental Health First Aid Certification Course

Understanding and supporting teen wellness has become an increasingly important topic for educators and youth professionals. Between issues that occasionally surface when teens are in our programs to identifying the signs of teens in crisis, it can be challenging to know exactly how to respond to the things we are seeing. This 8 hour program will introduce participants to unique risk factors and warning signs in adolescents ages 12-18. Using a mix of role playing and simulations this course will focus on selecting appropriate interventions, providing initial help and connecting teens to professionals, peers, social and self-help care.
