JFS Now Offering Youth Mental Health First Aid

Jewish Family Services of Greater Hartford is thrilled to offer Youth Mental Health First Aid at the Mandell JCC starting this February! Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) teaches adults to recognize the signs and symptoms of a mental health challenge in the youth (ages 12-18) in their lives and to connect them to the appropriate resources. We recommend this course for parents, educators, and anyone else who regularly works with youth. Both groups and individuals are welcome to participate. You can make a difference!

YMHFA will be held on [May 2 from 9am-4pm], and [May 19 from 9am-4pm]

Please reach out to our Community Mental Health Liaison at amacdonald@jfshartford.org to sign up or with questions. Don’t see a date that works for you? We are happy to accommodate groups of 5 or more on date that work for you.
