Youth Mental Health First Aid is a nationwide program designed to teach adults how to identify and assist youth who may be experiencing a mental health crisis. In addition to an incredibly useful skill set, YMHFA reminds all of us that recovery from mental health challenges is not only possible, it’s probable. Multiple studies indicate that early intervention promotes more successful outcomes.
TSVF is proud to announce that two of our board members, Jackie Todaro and Trish Travaglione are now certified Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructors! Look for us to bring you Youth Mental Health First Aid training in 2020. We are hoping to certify as many adults as we can in the hopes of helping our youth manage and attain recovery from mental health challenges.
