Did you know 1 in 5 youth is or will experience a mental health challenge?  And only half of all youth experiencing a mental health challenge receive the support they need. You can help a youth in need! Become a Youth Mental Health First Aid Responder. 

SCUSD has successfully completed its first year of a three year federal grant to provide school district staff and community members Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings (YMHFA). YMHFA trainings teach people who work with youth how to recognize the signs and symptoms of youth experiencing a mental health challenge and 5 steps to respond to a youth in need. As of October 2016, SCUSD has trained over 70 staff and community members to be YMHFA responders. SCUSD’s goal is to continue to build our capacity to support our youth by training over 500 staff and community members by the end of the grant period.
