What is Youth MHFA?

Youth MHFA offers an internationally recognised course designed especially for those people that teach, work, live with or care for young people aged 8 to 18 years.

Participants learn how to provide information, tools and techniques to promote a young persons mental and emotional well-being and to support a young person who might be experiencing mental and emotional distress.

  • 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
  • How will I learn?

The Youth MHFA consists of two full days.
