Event Details

   

FOR ALL ACS CONTRACTED AGENCIES


Just as knowing CPR helps assist someone having a heart attack — knowing  Mental Health First Aid can help assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem.  

 Mental Health

  • the risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns (including anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions)
  • the strategies for how to help the parents/caregivers/staff in both crisis and non-crisis situations;
  • how,when, and where to turn for help.   

The 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 a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm  

  • Listen nonjudgmentally  

  • Give reassurance and information  

  • Encourage appropriate professional help  

  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

 

Each agency can register as many participants as they would like.   

Target Audience:  ALL ACS CONTRACTED AGENCIES, ALL ACS ECE and WORKFORCE STAFF

    ***Please Note: This is a certification course and in order to get your certificate the participants must be at the training by 9am sharp and there will be no admittance after 9:30am.***
