Youth Mental Health First Aid

HCC is proud to offer youth mental health first aid training taught by certified trainers, Kelly Clements, MPH, and Emily Zanleoni, LCMHC, NCC. 

Why should you sign up? 
Today, 1 in 5 adolescents will experience a mental health issue. 75% of mental health disorders begin by the age of 24. Despite the prevalence of mental health disorders, only 7% of youth receive screening or treatment. 

Trainees will receive a 3-year certification to become a first aider to recognize signs and help refer to professionals.

We are currently accepting registrations for a future training. Contact Kelly at [email protected] to hold your spot.
