In this session, we will work to break down the “crisis” nature of acute presentations, learn how to support and respond to young people and assist them in linking in with appropriate care. We will also cover safety planning, developing our crisis response skills and what programs can do to support their workers and young people in crisis situations.
Building on Mental Health 101, this session covers how to identify and respond to crisis presentations, including:
- Active psychosis
- Suicidal ideation
