FREE Two-Day Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Sometimes first aid isn't a bandage or CPR, 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 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, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18- teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers and other citizens. 

Questions and to register, contact  or call 617.284.2647.

Getting the Kids Ready for School with Less Stress, 88 Lincoln St., Framingham

Getting a new school year off to a good start can influence children's attitude, confidence, and performance, both socially and academically. Parents can help their children (and the rest of the family) manage the increased pace of life a new school year brings by planning ahead, being realistic, and maintaining a positive attitude. This workshop will offer tips and suggestions to help ease the "August to September" transition and promote a successful school experience.
