Mental Health TrainingDesigned for Adults Who Interact with Youth
Mental Health Training ~ Registration is Now Open!
Ideal for parents and caregivers, this 2-day course – offered on 2 consecutive Saturdays – is being offered for those who are looking to explore the topic of mental health and how to go about supporting those who may be struggling.
This course is intended for an adult audience whose primary focus is youth (aged 14-25) as it focuses on the four most common mental health disorders: substance related, mood related, anxiety and trauma related, and psychotic disorders.
Instruction will also be provided on eating disorders and deliberate self-injury. Participants who complete this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with the young people in their lives, including at schools, extra-curricular activities, social services, family, friends, and communities.
Other main topics will include:
- Signs and symptoms of mental health problems and crisis situations as they develop in youth, including eating disorders and non-suicidal self-injury.
- A basic model to provide ‘Mental Health First Aid’ – meaning, how to help in a mental crisis or mental health problem.
- Learn how to accommodate young people who are in distress or are recovering from a crisis.
- Encouraging a young person – or guide an adult that might support a young adult – to identify options for help.
