Youth Mental Health First Aid for people who live or work in King County WA
May 15 @ 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM
About this Event
What is Youth Mental Health First Aid? Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.
Please note: There is a prerequisite of a 2 hour self paced online training to be completed 48 hours prior to the training to be admitted to the virtual instructor led training. The link will be shared several days before the training via via email.
It’s official – the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network is now the Empower Youth Network! The unveiling of our new name came during the Heart of the Valley Gala virtual event on February 27, 2021, where this announcement video was shared.
While the name is different, our mission is the same: to promote and inspire youth to lead safe, healthy and successful lives. We changed our name to better reflect this mission and to be more memorable across the community we serve.
This was no small decision – it was made over a year-long process with input from staff, board members, community stakeholders and youth. If you were among those that helped us along the way, thank you!
Natural Resilience: Moving from Covid Response to Community Flourishing with Kody Russell
March 3 @ 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM
If resilience is rooted in relationships, then how can we create the conditions in our community that help us feel safe and connected? Join an engaging and creative conversion using the metaphor of a garden/forest to understand COVID, its impact on our community, and our ability to adapt on an individual level (neural plasticity) and a communal level…toward a model for community healing. Together we will explore the natural resilience of forests and what lessons they can teach us about how to grow and live together! Register here for March 3.
