Support Youth Who Have Experienced Trauma
Whether you work with children and youth, or you’re a parent or a caring neighbor, you can play a critical role in helping children and youth thrive. After receiving your certification as a teen Mental Health First Aid Instructor, we’ll enroll you — at no charge — in Strong Resilient Youth: Supporting Children and Youth Experiencing Trauma. To learn more, download the Strong Resilient Youth marketing flyer.
This free training will help you explain what trauma is and how it presents itself in children and youth; recognize when and how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and other potentially traumatic events affect children’s and youth’s abilities to learn and engage; learn how trauma manifests in communities and why communities of color are disproportionately affected; and practice an effective approach to building stronger relationships with children and youth, helping them to build resiliency and positive coping strategies.
While this course is endorsed by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, the Strong Resilient Youth: Supporting Children and Youth Experiencing Trauma training does not contribute to Mental Health First Aid Certification or Instructor Certification requirements.
