Youth Mental Health First Aid Training – ongoing through Dec 2014

| June 25, 2014

NARBHA has scheduled to host one Youth Mental Health First Aid training per month through December 2014.  Please see THIS FLYER for dates and registration information.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based program that prepares participants to intervene with youth (approx. age 12-18) who may be experiencing a mental health crisis.  The philosophy of the course is similar to that of regular first aid/CPR – to prepare participants to be “First Aiders.”  First Aiders provide help until professional help comes along.  They are the conduit to care, if you will.

Ideal participants for this course are: parents, coaches, teachers, child care workers, faith leaders, behavioral health staff, bus drivers, etc. – pretty much anyone who comes in contact with youth.  Please feel free to post this flyer in your agency lobby, print copies for interested people, and forward on to persons whom you think may be interested.

There is more information on THIS FLYER, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Heather Coate or Kelli Behrends.
