Youth Mental Health First Aid training at St. Luke

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

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.

St. Luke Catholic Parish's Mental Health Ministry will be sponsoring the Youth Mental Health First Aid training on April 15 and 22, 1-5pm. This training will be held in the auditorium at 17533 St. Luke Pl. N. in Shoreline

You must attend both dates to complete the training. The cost is $10 and the registration deadline is April 8th. Contact Anisa Ralls for more information and to register.
