Overview: Mental Health First Aid for the Classroom

Allison Farrell, MPH, LISW-CP
Christopher Haines, MS, LPCI

All educators, no matter what grade, institution or walk of life, should incorporate mental health and wellness into their curriculum. With “Youth Mental Health First Aid”, teachers learn what warning signs to listen for, what language to use and how to ask their students the right questions about mental health.  Mental Health First Aid fits within the classroom PBIS structure. The training gives teachers the skills they need to start critical–even potentially life-saving–conversations about mental health and substance use in their classrooms.

Benefits of the Certification Training

  • Gain resources to support the mental wellbeing of your students
  • Understand the warning signs surrounding mental health
  • Gain skills that could potentially save lives

NOTE: This full-day certification training is an alternative to Wednesday’s sessions. Conference goers who choose to attend this session forego attending Wednesday’s general sessions. To sign up for this training, please select “Mental Health First Aid Certification,” at the time of registration.
