Youth Mental Health First Aid

Saturday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm

Join Carlow University for a course titled “Youth Mental Health First Aid.” This course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including:

  • anxiety,
  • depression,
  • psychosis,
  • eating disorders,
  • AD/HD,
  • disruptive behavior disorders,
  • and substance use disorder.

Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling – rather, participants learn to support
youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or emotional crisis by applying a core 5-step action plan. The Youth Mental Health First Aid curriculum is primarily focused on information participants can use to help adolescents and transition-age youth, ages 12-18.

This course is approved by the Allegheny Intermediate Unit for Act 48 professional development hours. AIU charges a $5 processing fee; teachers who wish credit, bring cash or check & your PD ID number. For more information, contact: mahvizdos@verizon.net.
