Youth Mental Health First Aid & Naloxone training

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 amental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis.

Naloxone is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent overdose by opioids such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. It blocks opioid receptor sites, reversing the toxic effects of the overdose. Naloxone is administered when a patient is showing signs of opioid overdose.

Join Jilian Reece, Director of Carter County Drug Prevention and Samantha Loveday, Director of Red Legacy Recovery for this full day training intended to help you respond to first aid crises you may encounter.

Lunch will be provided.
