  • Youth Mental Health First Aid

    A one-day training in mental health first aid for youth has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 9, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, 633 Dr. W.R. Brown Sr. Way in Evansville. Youth Mental Health First Aid is a public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention and teaches individuals how to help a youth in crisis or experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

    Cost: There is no participant cost for this training because it is funded through the Project AWARE grant. Learn more about SWI-AHEC's partnership with Project AWARE. Trainers will be Kerseclia Patterson of Southwest Indiana Area Health Education Center and RaShawnda Bonds of CAPE Minority Health Initiative.

    The course is designed for adults whom regularly interact with adolescents, but may also be appropriate for older adolescents (16 and older) so as to encourage youth peer to peer interaction. Anyone who regularly works or interacts with youth – teachers, athletic coaches, mentors, juvenile justice professionals – may find the course content useful. The core Mental Health First Aid course has been successfully offered to a variety of audiences including hospital staff, employers and business leaders, faith communities, law enforcement and the general public.

    Note: Youth Mental Health First Aid is not specifically designed for parents of youth with mental health challenges. Although parents and families may find the course content useful, the course provides a basic level of information and guidance, rather than more in-depth information on navigating the healthcare system, which parents may wish to explore.
