Common Mental Health Challenges for Youth is subject of Summer Course


Summer class on mental health issues for students will be taught at Grand View University July 17-20 from 1 – 4 p.m. and is available for Graduate, Undergraduate, or License Renewal Credit. This one-hour credit course will focus on two areas.  The first will be Youth Mental Health First Aid.  Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family member, teachers, and school staff how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis through the ALGEE process.  The second half of the class will focus on Adverse Childhood Effects and Trauma Informed Care. During this portion of the course, we will look at long-term effects of toxic stress from childhood and how schools can respond to help change the perspective from “What is wrong with this student?” to “What has happened to this student?”
