Voices of Hope facilitated Youth Mental Health First Aid training for educators at North Bay on Monday, October 15, 2018. Training and books were supplied through the Maryland AWARE grant that strives to equip people who interact with adolescents with this helpful training. Mental Health First Aiders are trained to be able to assess a crisis and how how best to help. They were given suicide and mental health crisis resource information. Although North Bay has an effective system of addressing and supporting students in crisis while at the camp, this training equipped educators on how to provide mental health first aid in their families and communities.
