Mental Health/Safety - PD
Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA)

Workshop specifically for Mental Health/Safety.

Important Session Information:

Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognized, evidenced-based program that helps individuals assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge or crisis. It takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health or substance use by improving understanding and providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential issue. The Blended Youth Mental Health First Aid Learner must complete a 2-hour, self-paced on-line course, and then take part in this 4.5 hour, in-person instructor-led program. Pre-registration is required so that pre-work can be completed before attending the in-person class. Once registered, you will be sent instructions by Gulf Bend Center staff on completing the on-line portion of the training.  After completing all training required (on-line pre-work and in-person session), 11 CPEs will be awarded.

The Texas Department of State Health Services has identified Mental Health First Aid as a best practice resource in areas of Early Mental Health Intervention, Mental Health Promotion, Positive Youth Development, Substance Abuse Prevention / Intervention, and Suicide Prevention. This certification course has been identified as being in compliance with the requirements of Texas Education Code § 21.451. All ISD staff are welcome and encouraged to attend. This includes new hires, teachers, teacher aids, substitutes, coaching staff, nursing staff, dietary staff, paraprofessionals, administration, bus drivers, counselors, social workers, case managers, janitorial staff, and any other professional who supports the educational setting who has not participated in the training for the past three years.
