How it Works
The new virtual delivery option includes a 2-hour self-paced course followed by 5-6 hours of Instructor led training delivered virtually through the National Council for Behavioral Health’s learning management system (LMS). In order to provide adequate support for the students and maintain the efficacy of the course, a course led by one Instructor will be limited to 10 participants.
What it will Include
The course will include expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care. Youth MHFA will include content applicable for adults working with youth experiencing other stressors, including the impact of social media. All content is gender neutral and culturally relevant.
● Computer with microphone and speakers
● Webcam (we ask all participants to turn on their video)
