Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.
This 2 day course is suitable for anyone aged 16 or above who teaches, works with, lives with and/or cares for young people aged 8 to 18.

Completing our licenced two day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.

Youth Mental Health First Aiders have:

-- An in depth understanding of young people’s mental health and factorsthat affect wellbeing
-- Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
-- Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress
-- Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
-- Knowledge to help a young person recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s
through self-help sites, their place of learning, the NHS, or a mix
-- Ability to support a young person with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive
-- Tools to look after your own mental wellbeing

The course is delivered in four manageable chunks:
-- About mental health
-- Depression and anxiety
-- Suicide and psychosis
-- Self-harm and eating disorders

Everyone who completes the course gets a Youth MHFA manual to refer to whenever they need it, and a certificate to say they are a Youth Mental Health First Aider.
