People regularly read about the mental health needs in this country – 50 million Americans in 2023, according to the national Mental Health Association survey. While people are more supportive and understanding than ever, the nature and scope of the need can leave many feeling uncertain about how to best support those who deal with mental illness, when concerned people might be overstepping and when it’s truly kind to get involved. This can be especially true when it involves minors.

An award-winning program from the National Council for Mental Wellbeing offers practical, real-life information on how to best help teens who need help maintaining their mental health. Their workshop – “Mental Health First Aid for Youth” – uses the latest research and proven steps to inform parents, grandparents, caregivers, those who work with teenagers and anyone who cares about young people what is both appropriate and effective.

This workshop will be held Saturday, February 3rd from 9 AM – 4 PM at the First Presbyterian Church of Honeoye Falls, 27 North Main Street. Pre-registration for this free workshop is required by January 26 and pre-workshop activities must be completed to take part. Please register online at: (scroll to “February 3rd”). Though this course often costs over fifty dollars, it’s offered free through a grant from Wayne County Partnership for Strengthening Families.
