Youth Mental Health First Aid - April 5th

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a one-day training 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. 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. This course will be facilitated by certified Youth Mental Health First Aid trainers from Clatsop Behavioral Healthcare.  There is no cost for the training, but space is limited and registration is required. .
