In July, 2018, Professor Mariha Shields
became a certified mental health first aid instructor.
As a YMHFA instructor, she knows how
to recognize and respond to people who may be living with a mental
health problem or experiencing a crisis. Shields will be training our pre-service
teachers during Professional Development Days, organized by PSII Coordinator Kaylee Wynkoop.
Shields received an
external grant from the Higher Education Suicide Prevention Coalition to help
cover the costs associated with hosting the YMHFA trainings on campus.
