Youth Mental Health First Aid

Mountainland Pediatrics also offers Youth Mental Health First Aid, a training course designed to teach lay people methods of assisting a young person who may be in the early stages of developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The training provides information on mental health challenges and disorders in youth and young adults in the United States and incorporates the latest evidence on treatments and services available as relevant resources. It is great training for anyone who works with youth, as it teaches participants certain skills that are important in helping someone during a mental health crisis. It provides an opportunity to better understand what mental health is, what some of the common diagnoses are, and how to respond appropriately. See the upcoming class schedule using the link below.
