Youth Mental Health Training

By Kristin Moltz, PA |  October 19, 2019

New Life Community Health Center is sponsoring another great training opportunity addressing issues of mental health among youth. It seems like almost daily we are hearing stories of tragedy and death as a result of young people struggling with mental health issues. If you are a youth worker, medical professional, teacher, parent or friend of young people this course may be for you.

The training is FREE and you receive a workbook and a certificate of completion. If you are interested in attending, you should act quickly as there is limited space and the seats are going fast.
