Drug Free Marion County is hosting a FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid Training, thanks to NAMI Indiana!
This training is open to current and prospective Youth Peer Mentors (ages 16-20) and Youth Serving Professionals. Participants will engage in role playing and other skills buidling exercises in an 8 hour training. Lunch will be provided.
Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8 hour public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The Youth Mental Health First Aid USA curriculum is primarily focused on information participants can use to help adolescents and transition-age youth, ages 12-18.
