The Healthy Living program is guided by the Youth Healthy Eating and Active Living Program Work Team (Y-HEAL PWT). The PWT meets bi-monthly to discuss current issues or activities in NYS 4-H Healthy Living programs, including regular work on creating and/or revising curricular resources. For example, the CHAT and CHFFF resources highlighted below were created, piloted, and revised by PWT members throughout the last decade. The team combines the unique expertise of CCE-Nutrition and 4-H Healthy Living Educators from around New York state. For more information on activities of the PWT, and opportunities for engagement, please see our new Invitation for Members found here.

Youth Mental Health First Aid (National Council for Behavioral Health) 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. 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 (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.
