Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. 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 problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. Youth MHFA is also available for adults working with youth (age 12-18).
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.
Participants must complete 2-hours of self-paced training at least 3 days prior to the course date. The 5.5-hour portion of the course is a small group-interactive training.
