数据表明,美国四分之一的青少年存在不同程度的心理健康问题。近年来青少年因抑郁而结束自己年轻生命的悲剧更让青少年心理健康成为人们关注的话题。为了提高大家对青春期少年心理健康的认知,帮助青少年正确面对和走出心理的困境, 紫鹭艺术中心(The Purple Swans Corporation)特邀新泽西心理健康协会 (Mental Health Association in New Jersey), 举办“青少年心理健康援助” (Youth Mental Health First Aid) 培训。

“青少年心理健康援助”课程主要针对与青少年接触的成人( 如父母,家庭成员,老师,教练等)。通过培训,学员可以了解青少年面临的心理健康挑战,探索青少年青春期发展常态,学习一套颇具实用性的“五步操作方案“,以用于帮助处于心理危机状态和非危机状态下的青少年。课程涵盖的话题包括焦虑、抑郁、药物滥用、容易引发神经疾病的心理障碍、破坏性行为障碍(包括注意缺陷多动障碍AD/HD)和进食障碍等。
