Mental Health First Aid

Over the course of the last 2 years, our community has witnessed a 20% increase in suicide attempts and completion rates in children between the ages of 10 and 19.

Through continued trainings and completing of instructor certifications provided by the national Mental Health Association, CISDR is an official Youth Mental Health First Aide training site.

Beginning this fall, CISDR will provide Youth Mental Health crisis training to teachers, community members, corporate partners, etc. to help train the general public on how to identify symptoms and relay information to mental health professionals in a timely way. Recipients will receive 8 hours of training in the intensive and nationally recognized curriculum.
