Youth Mental Health First Aid
You are more likely to encounter someone - friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community - in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.
Anyone can take the Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 - teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.
This training is free, but you must register to attend as spots are limited.
Seating is limited to the first 30 to respond, so please register early.
