A quick online course is being offered to help young people retain good mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Suicide Information and Education Services of Red Deer and Central Alberta wants parents, guardians and caregivers to know about this free online course for youths ages 12 and up.
It’s designed to assist young people with reducing the fear and anxiety that could arise during this “trying time” of viral transmissions and the need for social distancing.
Those who complete the program will also learn how to assist friends who could be having emotional difficulties.
The hour-long informational course can be absorbed in shorter segments. Anyone who’s thinks it would benefit “a youth in your life” should email email@example.com to get the link.
