    Contact: Carrie Lane   412-921-1123 x303   lanec@einetwork.net
    This 8-hour course is an interactive certification training program designed to increase mental health literacy. Participants will learn the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents (including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders and substance use disorders). Youth Mental Health First Aid is the initial help given to an adolescent showing symptoms of mental illness or a mental health crisis until appropriate professional or other help, including peer and family support, can be engaged. Youth Mental Health First Aid is not a clinical course and is not intended for mental health experts. It is designed to provide interested people in the community with the knowledge, strategies and tactics they can use to understand, identify and respond to an individual undergoing a mental health crisis. Note: This is a two-day course. Participants must attend both sessions and will receive 8 CE hours.

    Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack — even if you have no clinical training — Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. Topics Covered: Before you can know how to help, you need to know when to help. We call this mental health literacy – or a basic understanding of what different mental illnesses and addictions are, how they can affect a person’s daily life, and what helps individuals experiencing these challenges get well. You learn about: • Depression and mood disorders • Anxiety disorders • Trauma • Psychosis • Substance Use disorders Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well. Note: This program is a two day session and participants must attend both to receive 8 CE hours.

    Contact: Amy Stromberg   412-921-1123 x309   stromberga@einetwork.net
    While military service often fosters resilience in individuals and families, some service members may experience mental health or substance use challenges. Thirty percent of active duty and reserve military personnel deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan have a mental health con­dition requiring treatment – approximately 730,000 men and women, with many experiencing post-trau­matic stress disorder and major depression. Sadly, less than 50 percent of returning veterans in need receive any mental health treatment. The Veterans Administration reports that approximately 22 veterans die by suicide every day. Individuals trained in Mental Health First Aid can help to: ?Break down the stigma associated with mental illness like anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and substance use disorders ?Reach out to those who suffer in silence, reluctant to seek help ?Let veterans know that support is available in their community Note: This is a two day session and participants must attend both to receive 8 CE hours.
