Youth Mental Health First Aid Training This Summer (2017)

These free 8-hour trainings are designed to assist those who work and interact with youth to identify symptoms or behaviors of developing mental illness and equip them with the tools they need to reach out and offer help. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people, such as parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, coaches, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other community providers.

The course introduces common mental health challenges in 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. Some of the topics covered include depression, anxiety, substance use and other mental health issues.

Upcoming dates are Tuesday, June 20 and Wednesday, July 26. These trainings are held 8:00am-5:00pm at the Health District of Northern Larimer County, 120 Bristlecone Drive in Fort Collins. Registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Emily Leetham at 970-494-4370 or by email at eleetham@healthdistrict.org.
