YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID – FOR TEENS
February 28, 2017 - Training + Education
A YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID training FOR TEENS will be held this FRIDAY, MARCH 3rd at Taos Academy Charter School. The training will begin at 8:00AM.
Facilitated by Victoria Flores of ROCKY MOUNTAIN YOUTH CORPS and Eric Mares of CYFD, the course is straight-forward, informative and essential to equipping teens with skills necessary to assist in supporting friends/peers in crisis, while also providing useful resources to teens in need of intervention.
We understand teens today experience and encounter crisis far too frequently in their daily lives.
See Something, Say Something is working with TAOS MUNICIPAL SCHOOLS to implement MHFA training for all high school students in our district and partner with CRISIS TEXT LINE to develop teen lead, high school based, “ambassador” programs throughout the country.
For Saturday’s training, if you are UNDER 18 years of age, a signed permission slip from your parent and/or guardian is required to take the course. Follow the link here – MHFA PERMISSION SLIP.
We have work to do. Let’s go!
