Parents and educators got a front row seat to mental health issues plaguing the Treasure Valley Saturday.
The Faces of Hope victim center in Boise teamed up with the Speedy Foundation to host a mental health workshop.
Those in attendance went over factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations and where to turn for help.
"We all want to know how to help our children better when they are in need. I think the more that we can spread the word that mental illness isn't a stigma or a bad thing but a treatable thing," said Tracey Stone.
Participants received a continuing education certificate at the end of the 8-hour course.
