Covenant Health leads youth mental health first aid class

Posted:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

In light of the Santa Fe school shooting, Lubbock ISD and Covenant Health teamed up to train the schools resource officers.

Anyone in contact with children aged 12 to 18 were invited to learn about first aid and other resources needed to help these kids work out their issues in a positive and constructive way.

"We hope to help our school officers and our community members to be able to identify those problems earlier and hopefully have some early intervention before the kids come to a boiling point or they hurt themselves or someone else," Tavia Hatfield with Covenant said.


Covenant Health will hold a free Youth Mental Health First Aid class. The all-day lesson will be for Covenant Health caregivers, as well as members of our community. Anyone who has regular contact with young people, 12-18 years old, is encouraged to attend.

In light of the recent shooting at Santa Fe High School, it is more important than ever that we give young people the resources they need to work out their issues in a positive, constructive manner. Lubbock I.S.D. have confirmed 13 resource officers will attend.

What: Class to recognize signs of troubled youth and provide options for how to help

When: Monday, June 4 at 11:30 am

Where: Knipling Education and Conference Center, 6th floor west parking garage at 21st & Louisville.
