Youth Mental Health First Aid


A local group hopes to save lives by raising awareness.

Christina Christ, the Executive Director of Team of Mercy, teaches a class called Youth Mental Health First Aid.

The goal is to teach the public the signs and symptoms of suicidal youth.

She says the class has received a positive response and those in attendance are engaged, and willing, to understand the youth of today.

“In the past several years, since I lost my daughter to suicide, I really have seen our community pull together and implement things in our community to help, and this is one of the great ways,” says Christ.

Thanks to a grant through Hamilton Center, the class will be free through July 2018.

If you’re interested in signing up for one of the classes, contact Janet Rose at Hamilton Center 812-231-8129 or email
