Abstract

We examined whether mental health training for staff of an employment training program for out-of-school youth aged 16 to 22 years would increase mental health discussions and referrals. We reviewed case files of participants at 1 Baltimore program who enrolled 6 months before (n = 303) and after (n = 263) a 2-day training program. Chi-square analyses indicated increases in the percentage of participants with discussions (1% to 9%, χ2 = 4.91, P < .05) and referrals (11% to 16%, χ2 = 5.16, P < .05). Brief, intensive training increased mental health discussion and referrals among job training staff.
