Learn about how to spot the signs of mental illness or other problems in teens and youth through a workshop presented by Wayside Youth and Family Support Network.

Wayside sent out the following information:

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help.

Anyone 18 or older can take Youth Mental Health First Aid, but it is recommended for those who regularly have contact with young people ages 12-18 – teachers, coaches, social workers, faith leaders and other caring citizens.

The training is open and FREE to anyone over the age of 40 who works or lives in Watertown, Waltham, Brookline and Belmont.

The four day workshop will be held June 6, June 13, June 20, and June 27 in two hour increments 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Belmont Council on Aging, 266 Beech St., in Belmont.
