Get FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid Training! Sometimes, the best first aid is you. (No fee but pre-registration is required.)
You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. YMHFA, a National Council for Behavioral Health program, teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people ages 12-18.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community. Free training with breakfast snacks, lunch, and course book provided. Participants will receive 8 hours of professional development time with certificates available.
Presented by UNH Cooperative Extension Youth & Family Field Specialists: Rick Alleva, Ed.D. & Gail Kennedy, MSW.
