Tech Meet Up: Hosted by Hollister School District

Click event title above to add to your calendar or click here.

Hollister School District is in their 3rd year as a one to one, rural, mid-sized school district. The multi-year approach to one to one has had its challenges and opportunities. Teachers here are all at different levels of their journey to digitizing education. There are many pockets of great instruction that are worthy to be shared. We hope to be able to share all levels of technology use with everyone; from the beginners to the seasoned veterans.

Facilitator: Community Partnership of the Ozarks!

Mental Health First Aid for Youth (YMHFA) is a public education program which introduces participants to unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and most importantly – teaches individuals how to help a youth in crisis or experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. YMHFA is an 9-hour course which uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

The course is designed for adults who regularly interact with adolescents, but may also be appropriate for older adolescents (16 and older) so as to encourage peer to peer

interaction. Anyone who regularly works or interacts with youth – teachers, athletic coaches, mentors, juvenile justice professionals and others – may find the course content useful.

  • Build understanding of the importance of early intervention to help a youth in crisis or experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge.
  • Identify unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents.

Personalizing learning experiences for our 21st century students may be our next big step in education, but cultivating student mindsets that promote it and make it possible must precede it.

Join us as we start this important conversation and share what we have learned.
