Comments from participants in FUMC Windsor, CO who hosted a Youth Mental Health First Aid Class:
"This training comes at the right time for my husband and I. We have been in the middle of trying to help several of the teens we work with. One teen specifically has been really struggling and we have been trying to figure out the best way to support this teenager and the family. This class brought clarity on several of the issues we need to address and gave us the much needed verbage to be able to help effectively. The resources and handouts are something we will be using frequently."
“This valuable training provided help for me as a support person for many youths struggling with various mental health challenges including depression, bipolar and more. Specifically, I learned how to identify warning signs before a crisis happens, use language to bring out discussion regarding the mental health challenge a youth is experiencing and to know what potential local resources/local contacts there are if I need more support for a youth.”
