Event description

Description

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.

On the course you will learn:

  • What is mental health and mental ill health?
  • Stigma and discrimination
  • The five steps to mental health first aid
  • How to spot symptoms of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and psychosis
  • Suicide
  • Self-harm
  • Non-judgmental listening skills

Participants will receive certification from MHFA England on completion of the 1 day course.

Please note: We can only train 16 people on each of these dates (MHFA England rules), so for courses where the capacity was set at 20, places 17-20 on each course are reserve places only. People with these places will be informed if any of the first 16 places become available. There is the option to join a waiting list for each of the course dates.
