YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID COURSE
Just as CPR helps you assist someone having a heart attack, Youth Mental Health First Aid helps you assist an adolescent experiencing a mental health crisis or mental health challenge.
This four-week certification course will be offered at Centenary UMC (Winston-Salem)
on Wednesdays beginning January 18, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The course introduces participants to unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to respond effectively.
Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.
For all adults who regularly interact with adolescents. Childcare available with advance reservation. Attendance at all four weeks required.
$20 course registration fee, $5 dinner option offered each week.
All are welcome! Sponsored by Centenary's Shining Light on Mental Health Committee and Children's and Youth Ministries. Learn more about the course at www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org.
