Youth Mental Health First Aid Trainings

"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."

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training is being offered to the community of Browning, Montana through the Montana SOARS: Good Medicine Program grant, which was granted to the Browning Public Schools. The trainings are in a one day format and all materials are furnished with participation of the full day training. Certificates are awarded at the end of the training for attendance, along with the opportunity to earn 8 OPI teaching CEU's, Nurse and Pharmacist credits for attending.
