  • Psychological First Aid Training

    Nebraska Psychological First Aid Training (PFA) in North Platte, NE

     

    The purpose of the Nebraska psychological first aid program is to equip natural helpers to provide psychological support to survivors of critical events (e.g. disasters, conflicts, accidents, etc.). It is segmented into seven modules, each addressing critical skills that can make an immediate and lasting impact on a person’s psychological health following a crisis: 1) Psychological Support; 2) Stress and Coping; 3) Supportive Communication; 4) Promoting Community Self-Help; 5) Populations with Functional Needs; 6) Helping the Helper; and 7) De-escalation.

     

    No Classes At This Time.

     

  • Mental Health First Aid Training

    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.

     

    Studies also show that the program reduces the social distance created by negative attitudes and perceptions of individuals with mental illnesses.

     

    Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people.

     

    GRANT: Military Members, Veterans, and their Families

     

    While military service often fosters resilience in individuals and families, some service members may experience mental health or substance use challenges. Thirty percent of active duty and reserve military personnel deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan have a mental health condition requiring treatment – approximately 730,000 men and women, with many experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder and major depression. Sadly, less than 50 percent of returning veterans in need receive any mental health treatment. The Veterans Administration reports that approximately 22 veterans die by suicide every day.

     

    Mental Health First Aid is a valuable resource that can make a difference in the lives of the more than 22 million veterans, their families, and the communities they live in.

  • 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. The Circle of Security® parenting program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

     

    Learning Objectives of the Training:

    • Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs

    • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions

    • Enhance the development of your child's self esteem

    • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure

     

    “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.

     

    Circle of Security™ Parenting is an opportunity to join other parents just like you, for an 8-week class where you’ll learn to:

     

    • Strengthen your relationship with your child

    • Be present with your child during the best and toughest of times

    • Recognize your child’s needs and make sense of his or her behavior

    • Meet your child’s needs by being bigger, stronger, wiser and kind

  • 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.
