(South Texas ISD Staff ONLY) Youth Mental Health First Aid (Blended with Virtual Instructor Led training) *With Required Pre-work

YMHFA is a skills-based training that teaches school staff and teachers how to identify, understand, and respond to an adolescent (ages 12-18) who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. This training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out, provide initial support, and help connect them to the appropriate care. This training includes required pre-work that must be completed prior to attending the live virtual session. Registered participants will receive an email with instructions on how to access the pre-work course. After completing the 2-hour, self-paced online course, learners will participate in a 4.5-hour to 5.5-hour, instructor-led training via videoconference. Participants must attend 90% of the virtual class with 70% participation, complete a post-test and evaluation to receive their certificate. Certificates are valid for 3 years.
