Mental Health First Aid (MHFA, YMHFA, YMHFA Project AWARE)

MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) is an 8.5 hour groundbreaking public education program that helps the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Mental Health First Aid is offered in the form of an interactive course that presents an overview of mental illness and substance use disorders in the United States and introduces participants to warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and how to respond. The adult Mental Health First Aid course is appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis and addictions.  CEUs are available.

YMHFA (Youth Mental Health First Aid) is an 8.5 hour training designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with youth. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development and teaches a five-step action plan for how to help young people in crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD) and eating disorders. CEUs available.

YMHFA Project AWARE (Youth Mental Health First Aid) is the same training as our YMHFA training but is only offered to those who live, work or work with individuals in the Greater Ferguson Area.  See “Registration and Seating” section of schedule for details.  CEU’s are available.
