Youth Mental Health Awareness (YMHAnotopen)

[This course will take you about 1 hour 45 mins to complete.]

This course is an introduction to mental health for children and adolescents and explains the spectrum of mental health, from mental wellness to mental illness. Understanding what mental health is, and what it isn’t, is very important for breaking through the stigma that surrounds it. Knowing the signs, how to provide support and where to find more information are all critical. These things can help in managing not only an individual foster child’s mental health but helping progress our communities and society forward in talking openly and seriously about mental health.

In this course, you will learn:
- How common mental health issues are.
- The stigma and discrimination that surround them.
- The risk and protective factors.
- How to spot the signs of a child with mental ill-health.
- Brief overviews of several specific mental disorders.
