Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Fri, 06/15/2018

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. YOU can help them. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community. Participants will receive 8 hours of professional development time with certificates available. Anyone can take the 8-hour course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18.

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. 

For persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations, please contact our office at 603-863-9200 one week in advance of the event, so proper consideration may be given to the request.
