Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This 8-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. $35 fee (brown bag) or $40 lunch provided.
CASA Quarterly Meeting
I am for the child who lived in motels, cars and shelters. The child who now stands in the entryway of a group foster home. Clutching a makeshift suitcase. A garbage bag. That is the child I am for. And because I am, he will be half as likely to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent home. I am a volunteer child advocate.
