Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

This 8-hour class is for adults who regularly interact with adolescents 12 to 18. Youth Mental Health First Aid will improve your knowledge of mental health and substance use problems, and will teach you how to connect youth with care when needed.

Students will gain skills on how to help an adolescent in crisis or who is experiencing a mental health challenge. Similar to traditional first aid and CPR, mental health first aid is help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis before they can get professional treatment or the crisis resolves.

In this class, students will learn about:

  • Common mental health challenges for youth
  • Adolescent development
  • How to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations
  • Risk factors and warning signs of mental illness and addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Substance use
  • Disorders in which psychosis may occur
  • Disruptive behavior disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Available treatment options

Webinar: Overlapping issues: Domestic & sexual violence, mental health, trauma & substance use

Webinar: Overlapping issues: Domestic & sexual violence, mental health, trauma & substance use

This webinar is offered by NAADAC. Many persons with substance use disorders have multiple vulnerabilities. Professionals must know the correlations, implications and ramifications of these intersections. Clients have often experienced traumas, including domestic violence or sexual assault. Survivors of these crimes also experience trauma reactions such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. Some have pre-existing conditions while others develop them as a result of the traumas. Many have turned to addictive substances to cope with on-going abuse or traumatic memories of prior abuses. Best practices requires competency to address substance use disorders and these vulnerabilities. This session will discuss overlapping concerns and how to address them in partnership with victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Webinar: Keeping healthy kids healthy: How substance abuse prevention can really work

Webinar: Keeping healthy kids healthy: How substance abuse prevention can really work

It is a research-supported fact that most teens today are making healthy choices when it comes to substance use. Yet, opportunities for kids to remain free from substance use disorder are jeopardized when we as caring adults lack basic understanding about how our attitudes and behavior can protect them from early, risky use of alcohol and other drugs. 

This webinar will outline substance use prevention as a health science. FCD Prevention Works will share best practices, along with robust data from the international FCD Student Attitudes and Behavior Survey, to explore practical ways for you to positively impact the health of the teens in your life.
