Date: April 14, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Willowbrooke at Tanner, the behavioral health service of Tanner Health System, in collaboration with the UWG College of Social Sciences, if offering a free training program to help individuals who work with children respond when a child or adolescent is experiencing a behavioral health challenge or crisis. A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a five-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crises, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers and other caring citizens.
