Event Details

THIS COURSE HAS TWO PARTS: 6/8/16 & 6/9/16 FROM 9AM-1PM, YOU MUST ATTEND BOTH DAYS TO RECIVE THE CERTIFICATION.

Cost to the attendee- $25.  This course has a value of $170/person.  The cost of this course has been subsidized by Preferred Behavioral Health Group and funds from the MHFA4NJ Project thorough MHANJ.

You are more likely to encounter someone – friend, family member, student, neighbor or member of the community – in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a five-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness, substance abuse or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate care. Anyone can take the eight-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 – teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers and other caring citizens.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.

You will learn to:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
  • Listen non-judgmentally
  • Give reassurance and information
  • Encourage appropriate professional help
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

Organizer

Preferred Behavioral Health Group

Preferred Behavioral Health Group is the leading behavioral healthcare organization in central New Jersey. The organization oversees the provision of programs and services that teach, improve, enhance and maintain mental health and healthy lifestyles for children, teens, adults and seniors. A complete array of behavioral healthcare is encompassed, ranging from preventing substance abuse and other forms of abuse in children and teens to substance abuse and mental health counseling, outpatient and residential services for children, youth and adults to programs geared specifically to meet the changed needs of senior citizens.

Recognizing that people are best served when healthcare is made available to them in one seamless continuum (as opposed to duplicate or overlapping services received from several individual providers), the leaders of Prevention First, Preferred Behavioral Health of NJ and Preferred Children’s Services, (all nonprofit, charitable organizations) joined forces to establish a “parent” organization under which the others operate. Preferred Behavioral Health Group has assumed the role of providing administrative and operational oversight and support to the other organizations, allowing each to devote more time and resources to programs and services - and to their collective passion of helping the people they serve to be the best they can be and enjoy happy, healthy relationships and lives
