Free E-Book for Children

It has been said frequently in the past seven weeks, that we are living in “unprecedented” times. During this time of uncertainty we may experience anxiety and fear; emotions that can be hard for children to describe or express. These E-Books can act as a conversation starter with your children.

Dr. Daniela Owen, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist in the San Francisco Bay Area. She works primarily with children, adolescents, and their families and specializes in using evidence-based treatments to help with managing anxiety. Dr. Owen has shared these books free of charge to help “anyone affected by worries, fears, discomfort, or nagging thoughts about the Coronavirus (Covid-19). This is a scary time in the world, full of uncertainty and changes. But the good news is, there are things that we can do to take good care of ourselves.”

The books are free and downloadable, please click the links below.

Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911.

Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-­step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.

Anyone, ages 18 and over, can take the 8-­hour Mental Health First Aid ® or Youth Mental Health First Aid course and receive a 3 year certification from the National Council for Behavioral Health.

Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, and strengthen your community.
