We work with a few different partners to offer other mental health classes and trainings. These workshops are valuable tools for understanding mental health conditions and what your role might be in helping someone who is in crisis or struggling.
Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid for Adults teaches people how to recognize signs of mental health or substance use challenges in adults ages 18 and older, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate care if necessary. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people.
Are you struggling to help a loved one with a mental health condition? Despite your best intentions, do your attempts to help descend into conflict and drive your loved one further away? The LEAP workshop might be for you.
Based on both the professional and personal experience of clinical psychologist Dr. Xavier Amador, the LEAP workshop uses evidence-based strategies and recent research on mental health conditions to help YOU help your loved one. The LEAP approach (Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner) is based on Dr. Amador’s best-selling book “I’m Not Sick, I Don’t Need Help” and is facilitated by Bob Krulish, the only facilitator currently certified to lead this workshop in Washington state.
