FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Thu, Mar 25 10:52am

An amazing opportunity has come our way via First District PTA. This is an incredibly valuable resource for our Teachers, Parents, Volunteers, School Leaders and anyone who is interacting with students, because as we know, this past year has been a ride!! Students will be coming back on campus - or remaining at home - and facing mental health struggles and needing extra support. I encourage anyone who is able to, to register and take part in this course.  I'll paste all of the information and registration link below.

HOW THE TRAINING WILL BE CONDUCTED

WHAT YOU LEARN
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
