How Can Becoming a Youth Mental Health First Aider Benefit You? Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth.

The Marquette-Alger RESA (MARESA) is offering a 6-hour training (2 hours of pre-work and a 4-hour live portion) that gives adults who work with youth (or if you plan on working with youth in the future) the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.

The training is available to you at no cost. Register using the google form linked to this event registration. The pre-work and zoom info will be sent to your email.

This training will cover common signs and symptoms of mental illness in this age group including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, attention deficit disorder, common signs and symptoms of substance use, how to interact with a child or adolescent in crisis, how to connect the person with help. New to this workshop will be expanded content on trauma, addiction, and self-care, and the impact of social media and bullying.
