Join Kansas City's Mental Health First Aid Day

On Friday, January 31, Johnson County Mental Health Center will join mental health centers across the metro for Mental Health First Aid Day.

Each of the seven community behavioral health centers serving the KC metro will provide Mental Health First Aid training on the same day to promote mental wellness in Kansas City.

Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. The one day, 8-hour training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.

The Johnson County training will take place at Johnson County Mental Health Center (6000 Lamar Ave., Ste. 130, Mission, KS) from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Cost is $25 and includes lunch.

Trainings will also be offered at the following metro locations:

  • Comprehensive Mental Health (Independence, MO)
  • ReDiscover Mental Health (Lee’s Summit, MO)
  • Truman Behavioral Health and Swope Health (Kansas City, MO)
  • Wyandot Behavioral Health (Kansas City, KS)
  • Tri-County Mental Health (Parkville, MO).

Tickets for all locations are available online now.
