Thrilled. I finished training and passed my final exam for youth mental health first aid. So much of my knowledge came from volunteering here and I passed with 100℅
Certificate is good for 3 years. I can’t counsel, but I can offer an ear, assess a situation to decide if it is a crisis, de-esculate if possible or contact emergency services.
I can coubsel on what type of help to reach out for, but not treatmebts
I’m not a mandatory reporter, so I have some wiggle room to allow a kid to talk about tough subjects.
man what an achievement…good for you !
Very cool and well done to you!
Awesome! That is really cool.
congrats on your achievement
Thats a great achievement @ZombieMombie
Thanks all! I’d have replied sooner, but had to drop by work for a cooking class and to help my boss a bit.

i get treated like a child lots as well i think lots of people do with mentalillness like bc we are mentally ill we must have a mental age of 2 or something
Congratulations thats huge deal
Kick ass!! Congrats Zombie Mom!!
This is so wonderful!
Nice. Much needed people doing this type of work
Not sure how it is now, but in the early 2000’s there was no one like you I found on my journey as a youth
I hope you can be that bridge for the young people where you are to get help sooner
Best of luck @ZombieMombie
I was eager to talk when I got sick at seventeen but no one ever talked to the kids in the adolescent ward. I could have avoided a world of pain had I talked early on. When I did have an ear at narcotics Anonymous I was too scared of what people would think to discuss fully my problems. I did not know my problems were things people almost always went through and I doubted them when they said so about the things I was willing to share.
You can put it in a frame and put it on your wall.
You can feel free to show the hard work off.
