Youth Mental Health 101 – Half-day Workshop

May 7 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Free Course

Youth workers have a key role in the early intervention of mental health issues and in 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.

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


Eligibility Criteria

This training has been funded for workers employed in a Victorian State-funded Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) service, including those who are new to the AOD sector or recently employed under the COVID-19 Workforce Initiative and Peer workers.

Who is not eligible?

Students on placement or internships, workers from other community sectors such as family violence, homelessness, mental health, and AOD workers outside of Victoria.

Please ensure you have clearance from your line manager to attend. If you cannot attend,  cancel your registration and make your spot available to someone else on the waitlist.
