Youth Mental Health First Aid

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
(For anyone who works with youth!)
The below training was offered and facilitated by NCPC Chairperson, Traci Gardner. I had the pleasure of participating in the class and am so glad I did. Not only did we have a good time learning, the information provided was very helpful.
Having the tools needed to: Assess, Listen, Give reassurance & information, Encourage appropriate professional help, and Encourage self-help & other appropriate support strategies, will no doubt come in handy to the other youth professionals who were also participating in the training.
We appreciated Traci for taking the time to present the training, and NCPC for hosting.
