Youth Mental Health First Aid

Youth Mental Health First Aid -- Join the movement.

Sometimes first aid isn't a bandage or CPR. Sometimes, first aid is YOU. A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help. Anyone 18 or older can take Youth Mental Health First Aid, but it is recommended for those who regularly have contact with young people ages 12-18 -- teachers, coaches, social workers, faith leaders and other caring citizens.

Milwaukee Reentry Council Meeting


Location: Location To Be Announced

Welcome Home Ceremony


Location: Alma Center, 2821 N. 4th St., #223, Milwaukee

Using seven guiding principles throughout the project (History, Purpose, Creativity, Faith, Unity, Self Determination and Collective Work) we work with men who have recently been released from incarceration. The men attend a series of meetings at the Alma Center, coined the “Walk of Truth.” In this social adventure, we evaluate trauma and conduct a historical analysis, giving reasons or a purpose for productivity. We take that purpose and develop an action plan based on the individuals’ own attributes or creativity, all  while understanding that the obstacles in place can and will be conquered on this journey of progress. The Welcome Home Ceremony is a cultural event that celebrates the work done in the Walk of Truth, and the commitment of productivity that the participants will take. In the Welcome Home Ceremony, the Elder Council, a formed group of community elders, gives the official welcome to the individuals.

We value you being at the ceremony to help us welcome these individuals as contributors to our community!

Please come and  join us. See you there!
