Project SETH is pleased to host another Youth Mental Health First Aid course on June 2nd!

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The training helps you identify, understand, and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses. This course is designed to learn how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis.

The class will be held at DeKalb County Community Outreach Building located at 2500 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb, IL 60115 from 8 am to 4:30 pm. All are welcome to attend. We encourage high school students that want to learn more about mental health and be able to help their fellow students and friends. In fact, Project Seth is only charging $10 for any student wanting to take the class. Upon completion of the course, $10 will be refunded to those students.
