Join Adrian Molina and Dennis Hunter for an immersive online weekend training on how to use therapeutic yoga, movement, sound, mindfulness, and stress reduction techniques to help populations affected by trauma, addiction, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and more. This training will give you the skills to go to a shelter, prison, hospital or school and make a difference. Open to yoga teachers, meditation instructors, movement specialists, personal trainers, massage therapists, nurses, caregivers or anyone who would like to understand how stress — and more specifically trauma — affects the body and how yoga and mindfulness can help us re-regulate ourselves. For those coming from a yoga background, this will bring a new perspective to the practice and expand your knowledge and the reach of your teachings, empowering you to go out into the world and make a difference.

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
with Adrian Molina
April 19, 2020
Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 8-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
WHO SHOULD TAKE IT:
Law enforcement officials
Youth group leaders
People who commonly interact with youth in any capacity
WHAT IT COVERS:
Common signs and symptoms of mental illnesses in this age group including:
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
How to interact with an adolescent in crisis.
How to connect the adolescent with help.
1 in 5 teens & young adults lives with a mental health condition.
5.13% of youth report having a substance use or alcohol problem.
64.1% of youth with major depression do not receive any mental health treatment.
“As adults, we sometimes forget how hard it was being an adolescent. When we see a kid who is just miserable at school, we might think they choose to be that way — or that it’s just part of adolescence. But in fact, they might be in a mental health crisis, one they certainly did not choose and do not want. When a teacher says, ‘How can I be helpful?’ that is a powerful question.” — Alyssa Fruchtenicht, School-based Mental Health Counselor
