Youth Mental Health First Aid Courses

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. 

YOU can help them.

First District PTA is pleased to offer FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid Courses, now online. Join us for this opportunity to learn how to help an adolescent who is experiencing a mental health challenge, an addiction challenge, or is in crisis.

HOW THE TRAINING WILL BE CONDUCTED

Youth Mental Health First Aid will be conducted all online via Zoom. You will be sent an email with instructions to access the 2-hour self-paced pre-work. Once you complete the pre-work, you will be sent another email with access to the Zoom classroom.

WHAT YOU LEARN

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

“As adults, we sometimes forget how hard it was being an adolescent. When we see a kid who is just miserable at school, we might think they choose to be that way – or that it’s just part of adolescence. But in fact, they might be in a mental health crisis, one they certainly did not choose and do not want. When a teacher says “how can I be helpful,” that is a powerful question. ”

–Alyssa Fruchtenicht, School-Based Mental Health Counselor
