Staff learn about mental health first aid

Staff participate in mental health first aid training.
Teaching our youth often goes beyond the typical education most of us think of. It can also involve mental health education, and staff at U-E are learning more and more about that aspect. U-E staff across the district have the opportunity to participate in Youth Mental Health First Aid training where they learn how to identify, understand and respond to a mental health problem or crisis. 
 
This eight-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.

Staff role played various scenarios involving a student in a crisis. They discussed what to do, how to approach students and what may or may not work in various situations. U-E staff are dedicated to all aspects of education and being aware of our students' mental health is an important piece of learning and teaching.

U-E staff interested in taking this course can contact UEHS social workers, Beth Burke and/or Georgia Wimberly via email.
