Mental Health First Aid

Our community has witnessed a 20% increase in self harm and violent behaviors in our children between the ages of 10 and 19. To combat this, CISDR will provide training to help our community identify risk indicators, connect to resources, and save a young person’s life.

Mental Health First Aid is the evidence-based intervention training designed to help adults identify, react to and support a child (age 10-18) experiencing mental health or addiction issues or is in active crisis. The course introduces common mental health challenges, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan on how to intervene. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance abuse, disorders inclusive of psychosis indicators, disruptive behavior disorders, and eating disorders.

This is an 8 hour certificate course with provided training material and manual.
