Event description
FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid TRAINING For ALL Community Members of the Greater North Penn Region

About this Event

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.

This course is being generously sponsored by a grant from the VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn and presented by the SE Regional MH Services Coordination Office.

Community Members who live and work in the Greater North Penn Region (inclusive of Souderton area, North Penn area, and Wissahickon area) are invited to attend this training FREE!!

Mental Health First Aid is an evidenced based training, brought to you by the National Council of Behavioral Health. Attendees must be present for the full 8 hours in order to receive 3 year MHFA Certification.
