Course Description

Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is a full day 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 an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health 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.  Throughout the course participants will learn:

 

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm 
  • Listen nonjudgmentally 
  • Give reassurance and information 
  • Encourage appropriate professional help 
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies


Other Information:

This training is for current teachers employed by a school district but off-contract for the summer.  All in attendance will receive a $250 stipend at the end of course for their time. Participants must be present the entire training.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CANCELLATION POLICY BEFORE YOU REGISTER!

Metro RESA makes every effort to provide high quality professional learning experiences at low costs to teachers in the Metro Atlanta area. Because we often have to pay instructors, rental fees for locations, and for materials, we must make decisions at least two weeks in advance about cancellation of classes when we do not have enough registrants.

Therefore, our cancellation/no show policy is as follows:

  • If you choose PERSONAL PAY as your payment method: You must use a credit card to complete your registration for all classes with Metro RESA.  We will happily issue a refund for any class as long as you notify us that you need to cancel AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE CLASS.  You will be refunded via the same method of payment within two business weeks.
  • If you choose SCHOOL PAY as your payment method: Your school will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.  
  • If you choose DISTRICT PAY as your payment method: Your district will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL METRO RESA CLASSES EXCEPT GEORGIA TAPP, ALTERNATIVE CERTIFICATION CLASSES AND ANY TRIPS.

Refunds and reimbursements are not transferable to other classes. Refunds for cancellations (if the participant cancels at least two weeks prior to class OR if Metro RESA cancels the class) will be processed within two business weeks of the date of the course.
