OVERVIEW
Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8 hour public education program which introduces participants to the 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 help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care. 

WHO SHOULD TAKE THE COURSE?
The course is designed for adults who regularly interact with adolescents (teachers, school staff, coaches, youth group leaders, parents, etc.), but is being tested for appropriateness within older adolescent groups (16 and older) so as to encourage youth peer to peer interaction. The core Mental Health First Aid course has been successfully offered to 80,000+ people across the USA, including hospital staff, employers and business leaders, faith communities, law enforcement, and the general public.

This training will take place at: General Services Bldg. Assembly Room 921 Thatcher Blvd. Safford, AZ 85546

This is a free training!

September 23, 2014

NAMI Basics is the new education program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illnesses. The program was designed around elements that have been extensively field-tested and found to be highly effective, including:
• Recognition of mental illness as a continuing traumatic event for the child & family
• Sensitivity to the subjective emotional issues faced by family caregivers and siblings
• Recognition of the need to help ameliorate the day-to-day objective burdens of care and management
• Gaining confidence and stamina for what can be a lifelong role of family understanding and support
• Empowerment of family caregivers as effective advocates for their children

All instruction and course materials are FREE to class participants!

CHILD CARE available on-site.

Light meal served at each class

Teachers: April Rigg and Ruanda Dolak
