Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
The Campus Shield Services offer certified instructors through The National Council For Behavioral Health in Youth Mental Health First Aid. This nationally and internationally recognized course is a 6 hour public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Youth Mental Health First Aid 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.
Behavioral Threat Assessment
The Campus Shield Services provides oversite and Subject Matter Expertise on all matters related to threats at school sites. These threats are communications of intent to harm someone that may be spoken, written, gestured, or expressed in some other form, such as via text messaging, email, or other digital means. Threats may be implied by behavior that an observer would reasonably regard as threatening, planning, or preparing to commit a violent act. A behavioral threat assessment must be conducted involving all mandatory participants in order to ensuring a safe learning environment.
Safe School Compliance
The Campus Shield Services offers access to our Subject Matter Experts that will provide for compliance with local, state and national guidelines related to safe schools. After generations of school shootings and other critical incidents, there are a multitude of best practices for school safety. The likely causes of non-compliance are complacency, resistance to the law, or both. Compliance coordinates and implements risk management, school culture, and the community expectations to eliminate notion that " It will never happen here.”
The Campus Shield Services follows the national approach to deal with critical incidents before, during and after. We support and offer services related to preparedness by incorporating the following solutions :
• Prevention is the actions taken to prevent a threatened or actual incident from occurring.
• Protection is the ongoing actions that protect students, teachers, staff, visitors, networks, and property from a threat or hazard.
• Mitigation is reducing the likelihood that threats and hazards will happen.
• Response is stabilizing an emergency once it has already happened or is certain to happen in an unpreventable way and facilitate the transition to recovery.
• Recovery is assisting schools affected by an event or emergency in restoring the learning environment.
