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.
Tending to our social and emotional wellbeing is essential, especially today. But it’s not always easy to do. Stress can take a toll on our brain, our mind, and our body. Especially when we are under constant stressful situations. The good news is there are small, but impactful things we can do each day to help our mind and body process the stress and bring ourselves back to a sense of wholeness and peace. When we are aware of where stress rests in our mind and body, we can then bring ourselves back online.
Learn how to regulate your mind and body through breathing, mindful meditation, and connection practices to bring you back to a sense of wholeness and peace. This workshop is for adults.
This workshop is being offered on two separate dates: Thu, 2/4 and Thu, 2/18 from 6:30-8:00PM
Please choose the date you wish to attend and the corresponding registration link.

About this Event
Racism harms us all. Snoqualmie Valley Community Network believes healthy families and communities help build healthy youth. The Racial Equity Collaborative emerged from the Key Leaders Summit Planning Committee as an actionable and coordinated step organizations, government, school districts, and community members in the Valley can take to create a better environment for everyone. A safer, more just, more peaceful environment for our youth, families and community.
WHAT IS THE RACIAL EQUITY COLLABORATIVE?
The RACIAL EQUITY COLLABORATIVE will place a priority on creating equitable processes to achieve equitable outcomes through a shared partnership with People of Color living and working in the Valley. The collaborative will use an adaptive leadership approach to build a culture that fosters relationships, trust and respect across participants.
The RACIAL EQUITY COLLABORATIVE invites all stakeholders supporting youth and families in the Snoqualmie Valley to participate in the collaborative where we will:
- Examine the impact of racism in the systems that involve our children and youth.
- Create a shared community vision to promoting a culture of racial equity in the Snoqualmie Valley.
WHO IS INVITED?
Snoqualmie Valley Community Network believes healthy families and communities help build healthy youth. Anyone working within the community, supporting families and youth should feel free to participate. Please share this invitation with others who may be interested in participating.
The RACIAL EQUITY COLLABORATIVE will be coordinated and facilitated by Lisa Hart, Community Coordinator for the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network.
The RACIAL EQUITY COLLABORATIVE will meet via Zoom. A week before the meeting you will receive an email from Lisa Hart (Lisa@svcn.info) with the Zoom log in information.

Snoqualmie Valley Key Leaders meet at a moment of historical importance this year. As our region responds to a global pandemic, stay at home orders, a Greater Recession, and civil unrest, it is incumbent on those in positions of authority and influence to determine how to provide compassionate direction to the communities we lead. One way to make sense of so much disruption and change is to select a single lens through which to examine the whole. At Key Leaders Summit 2020, we will pick up the lens of racial equity to diagnose the situation the Valley is in today and develop a prescription for next steps.
Join us to learn more about:
- What is racial equity and why would it matter in a place like Snoqualmie Valley?
- What are the ways we perpetuate racism without knowing it?
- How do our views about racial equity affect the ways we lead in the other areas of our lives?
- What can I do to make a difference at this historic moment?
