1-day Youth Mental Health 101

October 26, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Free Course

Youth workers have a key role in the early intervention of mental health issues and assisting clients to develop skills to improve their mental wellbeing. In this session, you will increase your knowledge of our client group’s most prevalent health issue and develop practical strategies that both you and your centre/program can implement to improve the mental health outcomes of young people.

This half-day session is designed for non-clinical youth and AOD workers.

Want practical, no-jargon training on how to:

  • Identify mental health issues
  • Assist clients to link in with the care they need
  • Support them on their journey

Then this is for you!
