The first in a new round of mental health first aid courses will begin this weekend. Lake Regional Hospital will host the 8-hour training session for youth mental health first-aid on Saturday. The course is designed for parents, family members, teachers, school staff, and others age 16 and older. The courses will teach you how to respond and recognize signs of substance abuse and mental illness, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, and more. There will be two more youth courses and three adult courses offered through November. They’re being held in Osage Beach, Versailles, and Eldon.
