The Mid-South District would like to invite our youth ministry leaders and youth volunteers to an opportunity to strengthen mental health and reduce mental health stigma within our ministries and communities
What is Youth Mental Health First Aid? Why should I sign up?
Similar to CPR, mental health first aid teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health challenges, particularly in the areas of youth behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and experiences. This course is trauma-informed and you will learn more about responding to youth and families around:
• anxiety and depression
• cultural and identity challenges
• suicide and self-harm
• substance use and abuse
• crisis and non-crisis mental health situations
• best practices for offering support and finding resources for
individuals and families
For those who complete the virtual course, your Youth Mental Health First Aid certification will last 3 years.
Online registrations due MARCH 16, 2021. Before registering, please read these important course notes and considerations.
