Event description
Youth MHFA teaches adults how to help adolescents (age 12-18) who are experiencing mental health or substance use challenges.

About this event

Youth Mental Health First Aid introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan on how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.

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 self-paced training due Friday, May 14th at 8:30 am.
  • The 5-hour portion of the course is a small group-interactive training. Participants will join via Zoom and should be prepared to be present and actively engaged for the whole course. Participants will get two 10-minute breaks during the course.

Technology Requirements:

  • Computer with microphone and speakers
  • HD webcam
  • Internet speed of at least 5mbps. Test your internet speed at https://www.speedtest.net/
