1 in 5 American Youth have a mental illness, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. Unlike physical conditions, symptoms of mental health and substance use can be difficult to detect. Just as CPR helps assist an individual having a heart attack; Youth Mental Health First Aid prepares you to interact with a young person experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support.
A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help. Anyone 18 or older can take Youth Mental Health First Aid, but it is recommended for those who regularly have frequent contact with young people ages 12-18; teachers, coaches, social workers, faith leaders and other caring citizens.
The Meadows Psychiatric Center will host a Youth Mental Health First Aid Training on Monday, February 19, 2018 from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Kristi Godin, Director of Education and Mary Walsh, Assistant Clinical Director, will deliver this groundbreaking 8-hour training course that gives individuals the tools to identify when someone might be struggling with a mental health or a substance use problem and how to connect them with appropriate support and resources when necessary.
