Youth Mental Health First Aid

May 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Youth Mental Health Training

Youth Mental Health First Aid is an interactive 8 hour course 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.

CEUs have been approved for North Dakota social workers, law enforcement, nurses, and EMS professionals for this mental health training.

This course is valued at $170 per participant by the National Council for Behavioral Health. Thanks to the supporters of the Fargo/Moorhead Out of the Darkness Community Walk, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is helping to be able to offer this class for $45.

Lunch will be provided. The course will be facilitated by Ashley Ladbury Hrichena and Emily Carpenter of FirstLink
