Special Announcement

 

 

Hello School Personnel,

Our names are Ashley Coburn and Breanna King, and we are doctoral students at the University of Northern Colorado. We were recently awarded the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Doctoral Student Grant. Our project (IRB #2207041172) is interested in assessing whether Youth MHFA meets the needs of rural schools in Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, and Wyoming. The program is designed to train adults who regularly interact with youth to identify and respond to those experiencing a mental health crisis.

Requirements:

  • Be employed at a rural school in Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, or Wyoming
  • Work with students aged 12-18
  • Complete 2 hours of self-paced online class and then 4 hours of virtual instructor-led content
  • Complete a pre- and post-evaluation of the training
  • Participate in a 30–45 minute focus group approximately 3-months after training

 

Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the training which can be used for professional development hours at their district’s discretion. Those who complete the 6-month follow up survey will be entered to win one of ten $25 gift cards. There is also a chance to win one of ten $25 gift cards if you participate in the focus group!

If you are interested in participating in this free training, please sign up for one of the available dates here. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at [email protected] or [email protected].

Kindly,

Ashley & Breanna
