Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a two-day intensive, interactive and practical training course...

About this event

Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. They will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse.

MHFA Training Outcomes

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

• Spot the early signs of a mental health problem including post-traumatic stress disorder

• Feel confident helping someone experiencing a problem and deal with a crisis situation or help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others

• Guide someone to the right support

• Help stop a mental health illness getting worse and to recover faster

• Help reduce the stigma of mental health problems

• Use the ALGEE tool for conducting MHFA and practice as an accredited Mental Health First Aider

• Support the Workplace Wellbeing Charter Requirements

By attending you will receive a nationally recognised certificate of attendance and be able to call yourself a "Mental Health First Aider"
