Youth Mental Health First Aid
The Nanakuli Waianae Complex Area has initiated our monthly Youth Mental Health First Aid Training (YMHFA) Certification activities. Our first two dates are January 6 and February 17. March dates coming as well. Similar to ‘First Aid’ and CPR, "Youth Mental Health First Aid’ teaches caring adults how to help youth experiencing mental health challenges or crises. The Project HI AWARE grant will fund this event".
The training is all day long, 8 hours, 7:45-4:30. YMHFA Certification is only granted to those who attend to the end of the session.
Please share with url with those you think might be good candidates for this training that helps our youth. That might include school counselors, SSCs, teachers and resource teachers, school health aides, SBBH staff, administrators, classified staff, athletic coaches/athletic directors, state agency workers, faith based and community partners.
