Youth mental health workshop for care givers in Lyle Oct. 20

 


Encountering someone in an emotional or mental crisis is more likely than encountering someone having a heart attack, say the organizers of Youth Mental Health First Aid Course. The free workshop for anyone working with or living with youth will be presented at the Lyle Lions Club, Oct. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The workshop teaches a five-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis. The five steps are: Assess for risk of suicide or harm, Listen nonjudgmentally, Give reassurance and information, Encourage appropriate professional help, Encourage self-help and other support strategies.
