Mental Health First Aid Training
Youth Mental First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human service 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 ADHD), and eating disorders.

Denton County MHMR would like to offer a training on Youth Mental Health First Aid to ISD staff and interested parties.
Individuals not employed with an ISD or University are welcome to attend and the fee is $50.
All participants will receive a certificate from the training.
CEUs will be available for LPCs, LMSWs, and LMFTs.

RSVP Is required, class minimum is 5 participants, maximum is 24
