Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Youth Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course designed to give members of the public key skills to help an adolescent who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The 8-hour course covers a range of common disorders and potential crises such as helping a young person who is having a panic attack, is contemplating suicide or is struggling with substance abuse.
This training will be held at Bradley Hospital and will be led by hospital staff. Youth Mental Health First Aid is geared towards individuals who desire to learn more about responding to a youth ages 12-18 in behavioral crisis. Because this training is limited to 20 participants and requires a significant time commitment, interested participants are asked to submit this application. Professional and paraprofessional library staff working with youth ages 12-18 in public and school libraries are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to applicants whose primary service area includes tweens and teens. The application will be open until February 1 and all applicants will be notified by February 2.
