Youth Mental Health First Aid Training @ St. Paul Lutheran Church - Lower Fellowship Hall Tickets
Jul 24 @ 8:00 am – 5:30 pm
Youth Mental Health First Aid Training @ St. Paul Lutheran Church - Lower Fellowship Hall

The Missoula Mental Health Awareness Training project will offer its free Youth Mental Health First Aid training from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 24.

The eight-hour training teaches adults how to recognize risk factors and warning signs of mental health and substance use challenges that youth may be experiencing. Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling – rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan.

The Youth Mental Health First Aid USA curriculum is primarily focused on information participants can use to help adolescents and transition-age youth, ages 12-18.

Register through Event Brite by 5 p.m. Monday, July 22.

The free training will be offered through a three-year Mental Health Awareness Training Grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Email questions to um_mhat@mso.umt.edu or Project Director Ashley Trautman at ashley.trautman@mso.umt.edu.
