      Youth Mental Health First Aid - One Day

      The programme will give you: -An understanding of common mental health issues and how they can affect young people -The ability to spot signs of mental ill health in young people and guide them to a place of support - The knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness - The skills to support positive wellbeing Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. They will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse. Our courses won't teach you to be a therapist, but we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening. But more than that, we aim to give you the information and skills to look after your own mental health so that you can set an example for young people. By giving you the tools to have these conversations, we hope to empower you to create a mentally healthy, supportive environment in your family, school, peer group or community. Let's create a future where mental health is treated as a normal part of life, in the same way as physical health. A future where every young person has access to support if they need it. You will recieve a certificate for completing the course and all course materials are provided.
