About the course

With this 2-day, internationally accredited course, you can become a youth mental health first aider.

The course is for those who teach, work, live and care for children and young people aged 8 – 18 years. Delivered by a qualified instructor, the course enables people to better identify, understand and help a young person who may be developing a mental health problem.

The course is divided into four manageable chunks: What is Mental Health; Depression and Anxiety; Suicide and Psychosis; Self-harm and Eating Disorders.

The course aims to provide information, tools and techniques that you can use in a real-life setting.

Specifically, the aims of the course are to:

  • Gain a more in-depth understanding of some of the common mental health issues affecting young people, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders and psychosis

  • Work more effectively with young people living with mental health issues

  • Identify stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health issues

  • Support young people with a mental health issue and relate to their experience

Courses range from 8-16 participants and full attendance of the 2 days is required to qualify for certification. The course is valued at £300 and includes a course manual. Group discounts may apply if you get in touch.

Timings

The course runs from 9am-5pm both days. Tea and coffee will be provided. It is essential to arrive on time and attend all of the course. Please contact me prior to booking if this will not be possible.
