School Behavioral Health Initiative Trainings and Workshops
Youth Mental Health First Aid - Educators are far more likely to encounter a student experiencing a mental health crisis than any other emergency situation. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to help educators understand signs and symptoms of emerging mental health issues and how to connect students experiencing a mental health crisis with appropriate care. This 8-hour nationally recognized, evidence-based course certifies participants in Mental Health First Aid for 3 years.
Are the Kids All Right? Mental Health in Children - Through activities, role play, video and demonstrations participants learn about signs and symptoms of student behavioral health concerns; how trauma affects learning and what to do about it; and how to appropriately respond to young people experiencing mental health issues. This two-hour workshop can be conducted in either a small or large group setting and requires internet access.
Youth Suicide Prevention Training - Based on three SAMHSA Nationally Recognized Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) youth suicide prevention programs, this training uses video, discussion and role play to enable participants to feel comfortable in identifying signs and symptoms of potential youth suicide and how to assist a student who may be suicidal. This two-hour workshop can be conducted in either a small or large group setting and requires internet access.
