Print More

Two Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings open to Watertown residents will be offered in November and December.

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help. The sessions will be held in Brighton and in Brookline.

“Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, Sometimes, first aid is YOU!” said the Wayside Multi-Service Center, which helped organize the trainings.

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.
