We are excited to share that we will be offering the Youth Brain Health First Aid Course on Saturday, 6/3!
Have you taken the Adult Brain Health Course but want to learn additional skills to apply your knowledge to assist youth?
Youth Brain Health First Aid is a course in which you will be certified to recognize potential signs and symptoms of youth in a brain health crisis and learn ways to appropriately respond. You can learn more about the National BHFA courses here.The course includes 8 hours of instruction, a course manual, snacks, a completion certificate, and a fun environment. Courses typically cost around $250 – The Avielle Foundation and the Resiliency Center of Newtown are offering it to you for free. We are also grateful to our hosts, Parent Connection.
We require a minimum of 10 participants for the course to take place and participants must attend the full 8 hours of class time to receive each certification. There will be plenty of breaks with snacks and drinks, however lunch will not be provided.
Brain Health courses are intended to support the brain health of our Newtown community and those who live and work here, and are therefore offered for no cost. We also invite all others who are interested from neighboring communities- students (15 years and up), parents, teachers, school staff, family, friends, health care providers, law enforcement, and anybody interested. We suggest a $50 donation from non-Newtown residents.
Youth Brain Health First Aid will be offered on Saturday, June 3rd. The course will be held at Parent Connection, 2 Washington Square, Fairfield Hills Campus, Newtown (Enter Fairfield Hills, right onto Keatings Farm, right onto Washington)
