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.
