Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

A great offering from the NCPTA! Join fellow community members at NCPTA’s Headquarters at 3501 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27612 on November 30, 8:30 to 5:00 for Youth Mental Health First Aid Training.

Youth Mental Health First Aid (y-MHFA) 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.

The registration fee is $30 and lunch will be provided.
