You know what to do when someone is bleeding or choking, but do you know what to do when someone is experiencing a mental health crisis? Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis.
Cost per participant is $25, which includes breakfast and lunch. Please register online: www.abidingpresence.net/mhfirstaid
