Learn to help young people with mental health problems

On Jan. 15, 2016, Family & Children’s Place is offering a mental health training for adults assisting young people. The all-day course will help increase your understanding of mental health issues and treatments, help connect more people with care and reduce stigma. This is helpful information given that many people with mental disorders delay seeking help, but are more open to getting help when suggested by someone they trust.

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of different types of mental illnesses, how they can affect a person’s daily life and how you can help when someone is experiencing these challenges. This is important because members of the public are more likely to have contact with someone in a mental health crisis, such as being suicidal, and want to know how to respond.
