Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. It teaches them how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health/addiction challenge, or is in crisis . The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (included AD/HD), and eating disorders.

What is a retreat?

A retreat is a physical and spiritual pause from daily life. Although a retreat can be restful, it differs from a vacation in that its primary purpose is to grow deeper in relationship with God.

Why attend a retreat?

Retreats are an integral part of our Catholic faith. In fact, the Church encourages Catholics to make a retreat at least once per year. They provide a healthy opportunity to disconnect from the pressures of everyday life and reconnect with God.

What happens during a retreat?

Our weekend retreats begin with dinner on Friday evening and conclude with lunch on Sunday morning. The weekend typically includes presentations from the retreat leader and opportunities for Mass and confession, as well as ample free time for rest, prayer, and reflection.
