HCC Offers Free Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Did you know that 50 percent of mental health disorders present signs before a child turns 14 but less than 20% of youth receive the treatment they need?

HCC of Rura l Missouri is offering free Youth Mental Health First Aid training to network organizations and their employees. After completion of the course, participants will receive a valid Youth Mental Health First Aid certification.

HCC was awarded an AmeriCorp employee to implement YMHFA training. This eight-hour course
will:
  • Define mental illnesses/disorders.
  • Identify warning signs.
  • Equip individuals with skills to provide early intervention should they see a young person that may be suffering from a mental illness.
Contact Elizabeth Williams at elizabeth.williams@hccnetwork.org to express your interest in attending the training, or call 816 305-2309 for more information.
