NEWS: Becoming a Mental Health First Aid Instructor


 I am BEYOND excited to share with you that as of September 1, 2019, I will be able to provide Mental Health First Aid Training as a Certified Instructor.

What that means: I can come into your organization, team, community to provide Mental Health First Aid Certification Courses.

After spending a the past 18+ months out on the road, working with coaches, parents, athletes - and organizational leaders, it became GLARINGLY clear:

We are craving TOOLS. We don't know what to do / what to say. And we certainly don't want to make things worse. Not when it comes to mental health.

It's a heavy topic that often brings up a whole host of emotions inside of us. It's personal. And, often, our lack of knowledge keeps us quiet.

Not to mention the stigma that’s so deeply pervasive. The messages of just.try.harder. and get over it or -- even worse, suck it up.

The mission of Livingstone High Performance is to build an empowered village where ALL athletes feel safe, supported and seen. 

THIS kind of training is a critical step.

Awareness is key.

This isn’t about becoming a mental health professional; it’s about becoming a more educated, empowered BRIDGE to resources.

To be in touch about hosting an event for your team, department and/or organization - both in + out of the athletic arena, please be in touch. My fall schedule is booking now. or email directly at

If you're not in charge of making these decisions - please pass along to those who are.
