Presenters: Briza Gavidia, Felicity Therese Krueger, and Shira Collings
Emotional CPR (eCPR) is a program designed by people with lived experience to teach people how to connect with and support those in distress, drawing from the principles of trauma-informed care and mental health recovery. Recently, eCPR was adapted to meet the needs of youth in a collaborative process with young people and those who work with them. In this webinar, the presenters will share their experience taking leadership roles with developing the eCPR for Youth curriculum and tailoring this program to meet the unique needs of young people. Presenters will also share their own personal experiences of engaging in eCPR as youth and training other youth peers in this approach. Participants will gain an understanding of the leadership roles youth can play in mental health education and training.
