Lynden Schools has opened Youth Mental Health First Aid training to the community. For those looking to have tools to help young people in crisis, the community has three class options this fall, each on a first come, first served basis as capacity is limited.
Each class is free and hosted at the Lynden Middle School library. Participants should bring a sack lunch. After passing the class, participants will be certified and gain additional access to resources.
