And what can be done to specifically increase an awareness of youth mental health concerns?

Youth Mental HealthWell, thanks to Solvista Health there are two upcoming Leadville sessions that deal with just that, so if you are involved with youth at all, from educators to counselors to legal and law enforcement officials, please consider this training and staying current with the ever-changing challenges today’s youth navigate.

The Youth Track Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course is a public education program committed to empowering individuals to identify, understand and respond to young people in mental health and substance abuse crises. This course is open to everyone and is a highlight of the White House plan to reduce community violence.   

The 8-hour certification course helps attendees to learn the signs, symptoms and evidence-based actions to help connect youth in need to support systems that can help them recover. MHFA breaks down the stigma of emotional problems and gives you the tools to make a real impact on youth in the community.Sol Vista Logo
