Youth Mental Health First Aid Trainings 

The Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board’s Prevention Services Division is offering  three (3) Youth Mental Health First Aid Trainings.  One training will be offered in Gloucester and two in Warsaw.

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. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.

 

The cost of the training is $25.00 per person.  Materials are included.  Lunch will be provided.

Confidential Child Care Facility Tobacco Use Survey

 

In an effort to reduce harmful secondhand smoke exposure to children, the Rural Virginia United Coalition, in partnership with the MP-NN CSB Prevention Services Division, are recognizing childcare facilities that are promoting a 100% smoke-free environment.

 

The scientific evidence indicates that there is “no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke” as reported in the 2006 surgeon general report on the health consequences of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke.1

 

The survey that we are conducting of the 261 child care facilities that are operating in the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck ten county region can be completed here by clicking this link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NLF8XZC.

 

Once we receive your completed survey, individual child care centers that are 100% smoke-free will be presented with a lawn flag, a certificate, and will be promoted as a 100% smoke free facility through the media and web site listings.

 

Your participation in this important pro health initiative is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions you can call us toll free at 1-888-PREV-550.
