FREE CLASS: Learn Youth Mental Health First Aid!

Sept. 17, 2019 at Gryphon Place

Class is 8:15am-4:30pm. Lunch and all materials are provided!

Gryphon Place is sponsoring this Youth Mental Health First Aid class as part of their Suicide Prevention Month efforts. Participants learn 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. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD) and eating disorders. This course is FREE and open to the community! Lunch is provided by Gryphon Place. Learn more about Mental Health First Aid HERE.
