Bill would expand Mental Health First Aid to include working with adolescents

PHOENIX – A lawmaker wants to expand a state program that trains adults to identify and assist individuals showing warning signs of a mental crisis to include a focus on adolescents.

“We have become painfully aware over the past few years that many of our kids are struggling, and nobody notices until it’s too late,” said Rep. Victoria Steele, D-Tucson. “I don’t think that is deliberate on anybody’s part. I think that it’s something we’ve become aware of, that we need to address.”
