Mental Health First Aid gives you the skills needed to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be suffering.

About this event

Thursday December 16th from 9:00am - 3:30pm

This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use challenge and help connect them to the appropriate care.

The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
  • Listen nonjudgmentally
  • Give reassurance and information
  • Encourage appropriate professional help
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

This course is only open to participants who live or work in Missouri. The course is valued at $170 per person, but is being offered to you at no cost by Missouri's Department of Mental Health

The course requires advanced registration. Participants must register 2 weeks in advance (1 month is recommended).

Youth and Adult Mental Health First Aid courses have a significant amount of overlapping content. If you plan to take both, we recommend 3 months between classes.

Course Format:

Participants must complete 2-hours of pre-work training at least 3 days prior to the course date.

The 5.5-hour portion of the course is a small group-interactive training. Plus breaks. Participants will join via Zoom and should be prepared to be present and actively engaged for the whole course.

Computer with microphone and speakers

HD webcam
