The Southeast Prevention Resource Center is hosting Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings sessions. Participants can choose from one of two sessions and must register by the corresponding deadline:

  • Monday, Dec. 10, in the University Center Redhawks Room, registration deadline is Dec. 3.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 11, in the University Center Redhawks Room, registration deadline is Dec. 4.

All training sessions will be held from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Participants only need to attend one of the sessions.

There is no cost to attend a training. Lunch is provided. To register or for more information, contact Nikki Wolfe at nwolfe@semo.edu.

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a five-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self-help care. Anyone can take the course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people ages 12-18: teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers and other caring citizens.

Nationally, the course is valued at $170. Because of a generous sponsorship by the Missouri Department of Mental Health, there is no cost to attend these sessions.
