About this Webinar
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.
