Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

  • Oshman Family JCC 3921 Fabian Way Palo Alto, CA 94303 (map)

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, and eating disorders.

Kosher snacks and lunch will be provided.

We are grateful to our partnership with Catholic Charities of the East Bay to enable us to provide the training free of charge.
