The Fort Dodge Community District is to offer opportunities for Youth Mental Health First Aid.
The Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) training course is designed for lay people to learn methods of assisting a young person who may be in the early stages of developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. This is designed for
members of the public who have frequent contact with youth and young adults, such as parents, school staff, sports coaches, and youth workers / volunteers. It is most relevant when it is first apparent to an adult that a youth or young adult is exhibiting signs of emotional, behaviors, or mental health challenges. It can also provide useful information on how to assist a young person who has had long term mental health challenges or a history of a serious mental disorder.
We will be offering this 8 hour course on the following dates at the FD Middle School.
November 14 & 16 from 4 pm-8 pm
January 9 & 11 from 4 pm- 8 pm
