Youth Mental Health First Aid training #3
Location:
KEDC-Lexington
November 27, 2018 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder. Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling – rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
  • Listen nonjudgmentally
  • Give reassurance and information
  • Encourage appropriate professional help
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

The Youth Mental Health First Aid USA curriculum is primarily focused on information participants can use to help adolescents & transition-age youth, ages 12-18. 

This session will be closed at 30 participants , but if there is enough interest we will schedule an additional training.
