teen Mental Health First Aid Underway with White Swan 10th Graders

Feb 8, 2024

On Wednesday, February 7th, White Swan High School tenth graders began their teen Mental Health First Aid program.

teen Mental Health First Aid (tMHFA) is a national, evidence-based program that teaches high school students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades how to identify, understand, and help their friends experiencing mental health and substance use challenges, and how to get the help of an adult quickly.

During the 2019-2020 school year, White Swan High School was the only school in Washington State to participate in the teen Mental Health First Aid pilot, implementing the program with all of the school’s 10th grade students. Implementation has been placed on hold during the COVID shutdown, but we’re excited it’s starting again.
