Hear to Help for Medina County

Hear to Help is an initiative from Kent State University that identifies staff who have completed Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) offered through the Medina County Awareness grant.

Modeled after the Allies/Safe Space program that identifies individuals who are open to talking about and who are supportive of LGBTQ+ individuals and identities, individuals displaying the Hear to Help logo have a deeper understanding of mental health and substance use and can help connect individuals with services, if necessary. Completing YMHFA does not obligate individuals to participate in the Hear to Help initiative.  

Step 1: Take A Training

Mental Health First Aid: 8 hour or 6 hour in-person course for staff

Step 2: Display your Hear To Help Graphic

This was handed out at the training (desk plaque, magnet, sticker, or window cling). If you did not receive it, please email klaurene@kent.edu

Step 3: Promote Your Involvement in Hear to Help

If you are interested in letting students know that you are Hear to Help, an image and description has been put together for you to include on your email signature and/or website.
