“It takes a village to raise a child”. GSP has been approved as the 1st Teen Mental Health First Aid (tMHFA) Implementation Site in the State of MD!

Congratulations Kimberly L. Fogg,  Founder & Chief Mindfulness Officer (CMO), Global Sustainable Partnerships (GSP)     

GSP has been approved as the 1st Teen Mental Health First Aid (tMHFA) Implementation  Site in the State of MD, and we provide Teen Mental Health First Aid (tMHFA) training (see attached).

Our programs are based on “It takes a village to raise a child” an African proverb that conveys it takes many people (“the village”) to provide a safe, healthy environment for our children, where children are given the security, they need to develop and flourish, and to be able to realize their hopes and dreams.  

GSP recognizes the urgent need to address the mental health challenges that teenagers, parents, schools, and community partners face today. GSP already provides Youth and  Adult Mental Health First Aid for Montgomery County Public School Youth and Adult (MHFA) (see attached) for “The Village” our tMHFA  “All hands-on Deck” approach, will create a “safety net” for our teens, open the door to encourage open communication, create opportunities for increased trust and shared understanding between teens and their parents/guardians, school staff, and will mitigate  the trauma, especially when law enforcement/emergency services are called to a scene.  

A “Win Win” for the community.

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today.  We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.  In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late.  Procrastination is still the thief of time.  Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity.  

This may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos or community.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ‘Where Are We Going From Here:  Chaos or Community’.
