First Aid of the Mental Health Variety

Studies have shown that mental health first aid training makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and helps build mental health literacy–helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. We will take a wide-angle lens look at recognizing potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health problems, including: depression, anxiety/trauma, psychosis and psychotic disorders, substance use disorders and self-injury. We will learn a 5-step action plan to help individuals in crisis connect with appropriate professional help & how to question someone who you feel might be suicidal.

Notes of HOPE

Notes of HOPE

Join us for an inspiring day of postcard design at Dark Horse coffee. 

Notes of HOPE is a project that was started by Robby Borders. Robby has been impacted by bullying and suicide throughout his life. These experiences have motivated him to display a positive message on a sign that he holds on the street of Park City, UT for anyone passing by. While not everyone can stand on the corner of the street holding a sign like Robby has done, everyone can send a greeting card to reach out and remind people that they are important. 

Robby has been working with volunteers to expand his message by designing greeting cards which helps build human contact and meaningful relationships. Volunteers are welcome to take the cards they make or they can donate the decorated cards back to help fundraise for "Smile, You are Beautiful" dog tags, stickers, signs, and travel expenses as Robby travels the country speaking to youth and sharing his message. 

Shannon Decker, LMU Class of 2005, will be on site for the project. She is the executive director and co-founder of The Speedy Foundation, which works to promote mental health education and advocate for suicide prevention.

What is the Paper Tigers Documentary? 
Paper Tigers takes a look at the lives of six students at Lincoln Alternative High School in Walla, Walla, WA. The documentary follows students over the course of a school year, as the staff implement a new approach to discipline, one based on understanding and treatment rather than judgement and suspension. Paper Tigers is the story of how one school was able to make a dramatic change and how just one caring adult can help break the cycle of adversity in a young person's life.

Hope Lives Screening - Park City High School

  • Park City High School

In collaboration with the Park City School DistrictThe Speedy Foundation, and many other community partners, CONNECT is proud to present Resilience Week in Park City.  The week will include the screening of three powerful, award winning films to create crucial dialogue within our community. All of the events are free and the entire family is welcome.

The week begins on Monday, March 6th with a screening of Hope Lives: Preventing Teen Suicide beginning at 5:30PM at the Park City High School Lecture Hall.  Utah’s suicide rate has always been higher than that of the rest of the nation. Among teens ages 10 to 17, the suicide rate has tripled in less than a decade. On average two Utah teens attempt to end their lives every day. Hope Lives provides hope through the stories of survivors and of innovative approaches schools are taking to prevent suicide.  The film highlights three stories — a promising young athlete who took his own life when he wasn’t admitted to the colleges he wanted; a young man now in his late 20s who talks candidly about his suicide attempt as a teen and the relief he felt when he survived; and a young transgender teen who survived her suicide attempt, which reaffirmed her desire to live.  The film will be accompanied by student panels, information tables, and refreshments.

For more information about these events, please contact Shauna Wiest at shaunaparkcity@gmail.com; Shannon Decker at shannon@thespeedyfoundation.org; or Molly Miller at mmiller@pcschools.us.

CX | Youth Mental Health First Aid - Park City

  • Utah Olympic Park

This 8 hour training will take place in two sessions on Tuesday, Feb. 7 & Thursday, Feb. 9 from 5-9pm at the Park City Library

Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders. 

People are often trained to know CPR or the Heimlich maneuver or first aid, but many people are unsure what to do if they come in contact with someone who is suffering from a mental health or emotional crisis. YMHFA training participants learn about some of the most common signs of mental health issues, how to identify warning signs that indicate an individual may be at risk of harm or suicide, listen non-judgmentally, give reassurance and encourage the person to seek professional help.

REGISTER HERE

The course is limited to a maximum of 30 and minimum of 10 first aiders. First Aiders will receive a YMHFA manual. Cost is free. The approximate cost for a two hour CPR certification course ranges from $25-60. The approximate cost for 7-8 hour children's first aid course is $150-200. The approximate cost for the eight hour YMHFA training is $170. If you are able to make a donation, please click HERE. Your kindness touches many lives.
