YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING
Facilator: Dr. Kim Fielding, LCSW

Training brought to you by:
The Alliance of SWMO, Carthage Caring Communities Coalition, & Mercy Hospital Carthage

Join us for this free Youth Mental Health First Aid Training on December 5th, 2017 at 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at Mercy Hospital in Carthage, MO.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens 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.

The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and
non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.

Lunch will be provided at no cost. Space is limited requiring registration.
