Do you wish you knew more about teen mental health and some of the common signs and symptoms of mental health challenges?
Do you want to make a difference in helping to improve the wellbeing of fellow teens in your community?
As a Peer Mental Health Advocate, you will become trained and certified in Teen Mental Health First Aid after completing a three-session course that addresses common mental health challenges and provides teens with an action plan to help their peers.
This certification course is being facilitated by Jewish Family and Children's Services (JFCS) and requires participation in all three sessions to receive the certificate.
This course is an optional part of the PREP Fellowship and can be taken on its own. It is free to attend.
The fellowship is limited to high school students and registration has closed. Interested students should reach out to Maya Ben Tov at [email protected] to inquire about late registration.
The PREP Fellowship (Pride. Renewal. Education. Purpose.) is an ongoing, life-skills preparation program for high school students who would like to gain community through learning practical, applicable tools that will aid their transition when leaving home for college, the workforce and/or a gap year. Over the course of seven months, under the guidance of the JCC's LEAP program manager, participants will gather as a cohort to learn and engage with a lineup of expert educators and professionals from Bay Area and national partner organizations.
