Goshen Theater Education Department is proud to bring Youth Mental Health First Aid certification to the community of Goshen on June 3, 2023, from 9:00AM-2:30PM. Youth Mental Health First Aid is an early intervention public education program. This class teaches you to identify, understand, and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health challenges in children and adolescence ages 12 - 18. This Certification is provided by the Elkhart County Health Department, and through the support of NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness. The content of this workshop is very similar to an Adult Mental Health First Aid certification. Goshen Theater Education Department invites Educators, Directors, Administrators, and Caring Citizens of all backgrounds to join us in this vital training to better serve the Youth of Goshen and Elkhart County. You must be 18 years or older to register for this certification. There is a $25 registration fee, and lunch will be provided to participants. Participants must be able to complete a two hour self-paced online course before the in-person trainig on June 3, 2023. It is highly recommended that anyone wishing to participate in the upcoming Theatrical Intimacy Education: Best Practices workshop on July 22, 2023, also participate in the YMHFA certification course, but it is not required. There are only twenty-four spots available for this certification course. Should spots fill, a wait-list will be created on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration closes on May 10, 2023 at 5PM. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact our Education Director at GTDC@GoshenTheater.org or 574-312-3701.
