Youth Mental Health First Aid for people who live or work in King County WA

May 15 @ 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

About this Event

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.

Please note: There is a prerequisite of a 2 hour self paced online training to be completed 48 hours prior to the training to be admitted to the virtual instructor led training. The link will be shared several days before the training via via email.
