Carriage Towne News - 4/6/2017

BRENTWOOD -UNH Cooperative Extension Youth & Family Field Specialists will offer Youth Mental Health First Aid Training on Sat., April 22, from 8:30 a.m. ? 5:00 p.m. at Grace Ministries International, 263 Route 125 in Brentwood.

You are more likely to encounter someone - friend, family member, student, neighbor - in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. YMHFA, a National Council for Behavioral Health program, teaches a five-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 eight-hour course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people ages 12-18.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community. The free training includes breakfast snacks, lunch, and course book. Participants will receive eight hours of professional development time with certificates available.

There is no charge to attend but pre-registration is required. Call 603-863-9200.
