The Young Brain:
The Impact of Mental Health & Substance Use
Presented by: Jill Perry, Counselor, MS, NCC, LPC, CAADC, SAP
Adolescence is a time for significant growth-physically and emotionally. Because the young brain is not fully developed, it responds differently than an adult brain.
It is important to understand this development and how it is impacted by mental health and substance use issues.
- Participants will understand the basic development of adolescents
- Participants will recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health and substance use disorders in adolescents
- Participants will develop skills to work with adolescents with co-occurring issues

Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an interactive 8-hour certification course that introduces participants to risk factors, warning signs, impacts of mental health problems, and overview of common treatments. Participants learn a five-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in a psychiatric crisis connect with appropriate professional, social, and self-help care.
Youth Mental Health First Aid
Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people.
How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses
Trauma-informed criminal justice responses can help to avoid re-traumatizing individuals and thereby increase safety for all, decrease recidivism, and promote and support recovery of justice-involved individuals with serious mental illness. The target audience is community corrections, court personnel, first responders and police officers.
