Designed for adults who interact with youth in schools, community programs, athletics, families, etc., this 8-hour course gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to an adolescent who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.  The training introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders. Be prepared to handle difficult situations by recognizing, understanding, and responding to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.  

Anyone, anywhere can be the one to make a difference in the life of someone with a mental health or substance use challenge – if they know what to do and what to say.  Learn more at   

Lunch and snacks will be provided.  Participants will receive a course book and certificate for 8 hours of professional development.  Registration coming soon.

We ask participants to consider bringing a food donation to End 68 Hours of Hunger, a collaborative project between the NHTI Education Club and the Concord High School CTE Teacher Preparation Program. See for more information.
