Mental Health Association in NYS, Inc. is pleased to announce two Youth
Mental Health First Aid professional development opportunities at our
Training Center in Albany.
What is Youth Mental Health First Aid?
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.
