Event description

Description

Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911.

Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.


You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid 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 Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

Sometimes, the best first aid is you.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.

Project AWARE in North St. Louis County is providing this $160 per person training at no cost if you live or work in 63114, 63121, 63133, 63135, 63136, 63137 and 63138.

Lunch will be provided!
