Hoopeston Police Department Blotter for May 5, 2016
Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911…
Sometimes, first aid is YOU!
A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.
You are more likely to encounter someone - friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community - in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-Hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, it is for adults who work with or know young people, ages 12-18 - teachers, coaches, school staff, leaders of faith communities, parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, social workers, and other caring citizens.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
Youth Mental Health First Aid Course - Friday, May 13, 2016 & Friday, May 20, 2016 1:30-5:30 (must attend both sessions to be certified). Training at Hoopeston Multi Agency at 206 S. 1st Ave. Hoopeston, IL 60942.
