Thanks to our strong partnership with LG Health, we were able to hold a Mental Health First Aid for Adults who Interact with Youth session, in which ten participants had their training costs covered in full. Participants learned how to deal with a plethora of mental health related crisis and had a good time getting to know one another. The event was organized by Anthony Elliott, SHIELD Youth Worker, taught by Stacey Hoffe, Mental Health and Addictions Case Manager, facilitated by the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre, and sexual health information breaks were held by Denise Cole, SHIELD Project Coordinator. A huge ‘thank you’ goes out to everybody who attend and who put the work in to make this event the success that it was!
The class all set up for day one
On day two we decided to re arrange the tables into a circle in order to facilitate more conversation
Thank you so much for your time and energy Stacey!
