Youth Mental Health First Aid Class-Certification

March 21 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

This is YOUTH Mental Health First Aid.  This class is for people who work with young people, parents, or even if you are in high school.  (We ask that you be at least a junior in High School in order to attend.)

In this class you will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of anxiety, depression, substance use disorders and psychosis.  You will learn to recognize suicidal thoughts and behaviors.  You will also learn what to do to help that person until appropriate professional and other help can begin.

You may know CPR or the Heimlich maneuver.  You can call 911.  But, would you know how to administer first aid in a mental health crisis?  We may be trained to tell when someone is suffering from a heart attack, is choking, or is unable to breathe. But, what does depression, anxiety or psychosis look like? Could you recognize suicidal thoughts or behaviors?

This 8-hour course is taught by certified “Mental Health First Aid USA” instructors.

LUNCH IS PROVIDED by MyAlliance.

 

 

Learn this for yourself.  Bring it to your community. This evidence-based program will change lives.
