Learn how to talk to young people
about mental health and substance abuse
TISA has partnered with the Malik Human Services Institute (MHSI) to launch a nationally recognized capacity-building, evidence-based training to teach adults how to assist youth (12-18) who are experiencing mental health or addiction challenges or are in a crisis. The primary trainer for this effort is Dr. Jimmy Jones, Vice Chair, TISA Board and President-MHSI. The goal is to train 100 adults over twelve months throughout the country. The initiative, aimed at Chaplains, Imams, Youth Workers and other service providers to the Muslim community is entitled #YMHFA100.
Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is managed, operated and disseminated by the National Council for Behavioral Health and the Missouri Department of Mental Health. Participants who take the entire 8 hours workshop receive an informative resource manual and a renewable national certificate.
