Youth MHFA Training

Thursday, December 16th, 8:30am-1pm CST


Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health challenges and substance use disorders in young people. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to a young person who may be developing a mental health or substance use issue and help connect them to the appropriate care.

Attendees will complete a 2-hour self-paced class (pre-work) and then participate in a 4.5-hour instructor-led class using video conferencing via Zoom.

After registering, participants will receive an email invitation to join MHFA Connect, the platform on which they will access their course materials and complete their pre-work. The pre-work is a prerequisite for the 4.5-hour Zoom training. The self-paced class will need to be completed at least 48 hours before the training.

This training is interactive; please have a microphone and webcam.

Deadline to register is Monday, December 6, 2021.

Target Audience: Addiction Clinical, Mental Health Clinical, Executive Management, Clinical Management, Human Services, Preventionist
