North Platte mental health instructor recognizedTell North Platte what you think

Dr. Brenda Petersen of North Platte was recently awarded one of 10 National Merit Scholarships and Commendations to mental health first aid trainers from the National Council for Behavioral Health in Washington D.C. 

Petersen is the founder of an independent counseling firm specializing in academic achievement. She assists a large client base of students who are working to achieve their academic potential. 

Petersen will attend the National Council for Behavioral Health Instructors Summit and Symposium in Seattle, Wash. on April 2 as well as the National Council for Behavioral Health’s National Convention April 3-5. 

“The scholarship is a huge honor and I am so amazed to have been awarded it and given this opportunity,” she said. “I am anxious to become certified in the new program modules offered at the summit, and then to bring that training back here and put it to use in our community.”

Petersen is currently a certified trainer for the National Council for Behavioral Health’s Mental Health First Aid traveling nationwide to build mental health literacy, helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of both mental illness and mental health crisis.
