Tampa Center hosting Mental Health First Aid courses for public this fall

Do you know someone who works with youths—a teacher, caregiver, or pastoral staff member? Saint Leo’s Human Services Department is sponsoring two sessions of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses this fall, which could benefit them. Hosted by the Tampa Education Center, these 8-hour MHFA-Youth courses are intended for those who work and interact with young people.

Youth Mental Health First Aid will be offered 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, September 25, and Friday, October 1, at Saint Leo’s Tampa Education Center, 1403 N. Howard Ave., Tampa, FL, 33607. The classes will be taught by Dr. Nancy Wood, director of Saint Leo University’s Graduate Human Services Administration Program.

Seating is limited. The cost is $25 and includes a workbook. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch to the MHFA class.

MHFA-Youth is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human service workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (ages 12-18), who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis.
