Youth Mental Health First Aid Course Offered to Community

youthmental health first aid

Montrose County is once again partnering with the Center for Mental Health to bring a Mental Health First Aid course to the community. 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. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders. Partner with us to learn a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.

Youth Mental Health First Aid will be offered to community members free of charge and will be held at Montrose County Health & Human Resources, 1845 S. Townsend Ave from 8 am to noon on Dec 4th and Dec 5th, 2017. Both dates must be attended to receive full credit for certification. For more information or to reserve your spot, please contact Danace Arthur, Montrose County Health Educator, at 970-252-5011 or County employees must have supervisors’ approval to attend.

The course will be instructed by Center for Mental Health staffers Robin Berndt, Certified Mental Health First Aid Instructor; Stacee Curry, MA, Certified Mental Health Aid Instructor; and Heather Darbe, Training and Outreach Coordinator and Suicide Prevention Specialist.
