Event Details

London Sport workshops offer training and support in a number of different subjects in order to increase participation in physical activity and encourage sports clubs and community organisations to feel equipped to offer the highest level of participant experience.



Youth Mental Health Awareness/Mental Health First Aid

Mental health is just as important to our overall wellbeing as physical health, yet we tend to pay far less attention to it. The mental health of young people is particularly important. Half of all long-term mental illness in adulthood starts by 15 and three quarters by 18. Physical first aid training is common place and widespread but why not mental first aid too?
Coaches, volunteers and community workers can do a great deal to help, without being experts. 

What Is It About?
Learners will explore the most common mental health conditions experienced by young people and discover what youth and sport workers can do to prevent and/or intervene when needed.

Learners will be able to:

  • challenge the discrimination surrounding mental health
  • define mental health & common issues
  • relate to other people's experiences
  • look after their own mental health
  • protect a young person who may be at risk
  • spot the signs of mental health issues in young people
  • give help, support and guidance to any young person who needs it
