Training to be a Mental Health Hero

Youth Mental Health First Aid

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Similar to 'First Aid' and CPR, there is something called 'Youth Mental Health First Aid'. It teaches you how to help young people who might be going through a crisis.

It is open to the general public and encouraged for school personnel, law enforcement, clergy, anyone who might be faced with helping a young person in crisis.

It's an eight-hour training this Thursday at Starcare and you need to register Wednesday if you're interested.

Leaders of this training session say anyone can take this course and become a mental health hero.

The Star Institute is at 517 N. Zenith in Lubbock.
