EastPoint schedules youth mental health first aid program

A youth mental health first aid program is being offered by managed care operator EastPointe on Oct. 9-10 in Lumberton.

The eight-hour course is a five-step plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, EastPointe says. It can connect the young person with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self help care.

The course is open to anyone, but is designed for adults who work with young people ages 12 to 18. Among that group are teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

To register, call (910) 272-1239 or email training@eastpointe.net with your name, phone number, email address, occupation or employer name, and a brief description explaining why you are enrolling in the course.

EastPointe is a managed care organization that manages, coordinates, and monitors the mental health, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and substance use/addiction services in a 12-county region which includes Bladen.
