    Check below for Youth and Adult Mental Health First Aid Training

     

    ADULT Mental Health First Aid is an international program proven to be effective. Peer-reviewed studies published in Australia, where the program originated, show that individuals trained in the program:

    • Grow their knowledge of signs, symptoms and risk factors of mental illnesses and addictions.

    • Can identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental illness or addiction.

    • Increase their confidence in and likelihood to help an individual in distress.

    • Show increased mental wellness themselves.

  • PARENTING: Circle of Security Parenting Series

    At times, all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.

    • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions

    • Enhance the development of your child's self esteem

    “If you are looking for a practical, wise, science-based, and accessible guide to creating the kind of attachment your child needs to optimize development, you’ve come to the right place!”

     

    “Attachment research has shown that those children who are fortunate to develop what is called ‘secure’ attachment are most likely to grow into caring, thoughtful, reflective, emotionally and socially intelligent, resilient individuals who thrive.”

     

    COS-P is not just another program. It is a dynamic process for building

     

    You’re not alone. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what your child needs, what her behaviors mean and if you’re doing right by him. Imagine what it might feel like if you could make sense of what your child is really asking from you.

  • QPR For Suicide Prevention
    Question, Persuade, & Refer

    QPR is not intended to be a form of counseling or treatment.

    QPR is intended to offer hope through positive action.

    QPR is intended to teach those who are in a position to recognize the warning signs, clues and suicidal communications of people in trouble to ACT vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

     

    SUICIDE PREVENTION GATEKEEPERS

    A gatekeeper is anyone trained to recognize a suicide crisis and, because of their training, knows how and where to find help.

     

    WHY QPR FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION GATEKEEPERS?

    QPR gatekeeper training only takes 1.5- 2hours and is taught in a format that is clear and concise. Gatekeepers are given information that is easy to understand and reinforced by a QPR booklet and card complete with warning signs, methods to encourage a person to get help and a list of resources available in your community.

     

    WHO TEACHES QPR GATEKEEPERS?

    QPR was created and developed by Paul Quinnett, Ph.D. of Spokane, Washington.  Dr. Quinnett began a QPR Instructor Certification Program to allow qualified candidates to teach QPR and increase the number of gatekeepers trained to act in a bold and positive manner to prevent a suicide and save a life.
