What is MHFA for Schools and Colleges?

MHFA for Schools and Colleges has been designed especially with schools in mind. Based on the Youth MHFA course but targeted to meet the needs of educational environments, MHFA Schools will cover key topics around young people’s mental health and wellbeing, with a strong practical focus on how to support young people experiencing mental distress. Whilst the course is not a replacement for the two day Youth MHFA course, delegates will become Champions for better mental health in schools.

What will I learn about on a one day MHFA for Schools and Colleges course?

_What is mental health and mental ill health?
_Stigma and discrimination
_The five steps of Mental Health First Aid
_How to spot symptoms of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders and psychosis
_Suicide
_Self-harm
_Non judgemental listening skills
 

This 1 day course cost of £175 per person, unless you have been issued a Promotion Code by Peter.

The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. Peter will provide a very safe learning environment and is trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don't feel comfortable joining in certain bits, then don't, we won't make you do something you aren't comfortable with.

Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, including suicide, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and Peter can help if people find some bits particularly difficult.
