Mental health first aid for youth

Aspire Behavioral Health is hosting Youth Mental Health First Aid USA, an eight-hour public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents.

The program will be 8:30 a.m. May 30 at Family Connection located at 40 Harold Ragan Dr.

The program builds understanding of the importance of early intervention and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge.

It can assist in connecting young people to professional, peer, social and self-help care.

The course is designed for parents, teachers, school staff, coaches, youth group leaders, law enforcement, nurses, first responders and caring citizens.
