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, addiction challenges or are in a crisis. The primary trainer for this effort is Dr. Jimmy Jones, Executive Vice President and Professor at TISA and President of MHSI. The goal is to provide chaplains, imams, youth leaders, and other key leadership with the skills needed to handle what has become a significant problem in our community.
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 workshop receive an informative resource manual and a renewable national certification.
