Supporting our teens and their mental health is of primary importance to us, now more than ever. We offer Pop Ups and gatherings, both virtual and in-person, which focus on how we can support teens and their mental health during a pandemic.

Our Summer Series with Scott Fried in July 2020 was our first offering geared to teens, parents and educators. Throughout the year, have continued to offer programs that keep the mental health of our teens in the forefront of our work.

YMHFA continues to be offered virtually in order to make this training accessible to all while we are social distancing.

This training is designed to teach youth professionals, parents, caregivers, teachers, school staff, neighbors and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12–18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions crisis.

Training begins with a 2-hour self-paced program, that you can do online at your leisure. Participants in the training need to have completed this 2-hour training before joining the virtual program. The virtual training lasts for 5 hours and will happen on a certain day and time, with other classmates in the program. After you complete the 7 hours of training, you will become certified in Youth Mental Health First Aid.

We are pleased to also offer this course in the evenings, so that it is accessible to working parents. The 5-hour course will be offered on Tuesday evening, April 27 and May 4 from 6:30pm – 9:00 pm Pacific. Anyone who participates in this training will need to also complete the two hour pre-course work online.

We are proud to offer Youth Mental Health First Aid training for your team. Cost is $36/person or a minimum of $360. Please contact Deb Massey at deb@jewishlearning.works for more information.
