End Sex Trafficking In Lincoln: Workshop

It’s important to understand that sex trafficking exists where we live. At least 200 girls are sold in the Lincoln area each month, and at least 900 are sold throughout Nebraska. Awareness is a critical first step to fight against sex trafficking. Responding and becoming involved is the only way we can end it!

I’ve Got A Name Street Outreach Director Megan Johnson uses her life-story experience to provide hope and change to victims and those who are vulnerable to sex trafficking and will be sharing her story on March 19, 2019.

YOUTH Mental Health First Aid
A young person 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. Youth 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 can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

What is a Gatekeeper?

According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.

Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:
