Mental Health First Aid Missouri

October 6 - Mental Health First Aid
(Virtual Course)

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 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 the Missouri Department of Mental Health.

This course requires advanced registration.

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.
