MONROE — Summertime can be filled with fun activities and some needed downtime for kids and families. As the school year comes to a close, it can also be a time when kids have less structure and routine as well as fewer social interactions that keep them mentally and emotionally healthy.

Extension offers a program called Youth Mental Health First Aid. 

The program is Friday, May 31, free of charge, and is in-person  to area residents on at the Green County Human Services Building in Monroe.  

The class starts at 8 a.m. and ends by 4:30 p.m. Lunch is served on site. It is an eight-hour evidence-based training, and participants receive a certificate of completion and an excellent 400-page manual upon completion.

This is a program to help adults become aware of the kinds of mental health conditions youth and young adults experience, and how to recognize early, worsening, and crisis signs and symptoms of mental health conditions. Participants also learn and practice ways to interact with and support a youth or young adult and identify appropriate community resources and professionals to help.

Many professional organizations accept the certificate as proof of CEUs, and grandparents and other adults who care about youth are welcome and will benefit greatly.

Call Extension Green County at 608-328-9440 for more information or to register.
