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.
