Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness or emotional distress.

About this event

This training gives you the skills you need to respond in a mental health emergency with youth and young adults and to offer support to a young person who appears to be in emotional distress.

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

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
  • Listen nonjudgementally
  • 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 requires advanced registration. Participants must register 2 weeks in advance.

Course Format:
