Event description

Description

An internationally recognised course delivered by YMCA for those who teach, work, live with or care for young people aged 11-18.

The course provides tools and techniques to promote a young
person's mental and emotional well-being to enable support for those who might be experiencing mental and emotional distress

The Youth MHFA course is split into four manageable chunks. These are:

  • What is mental health?
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Suicide and psychosis
  • Self-harm and eating disorders.
  • Within each section, there is a clear focus on the issues faced by young people today, including bullying/cyber bullying and substance misuse. The course also teaches the importance of promoting wellbeing and protective factors.

In each section you’ll learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health issue in young people
  • Feel confident helping a young person experiencing mental ill health
  • Provide help on a first aid basis- Help protect a young person who might be at risk of harm
  • Help prevent a mental health issue from getting worse- Help a young person recover faster
  • Guide a young person towards the right support- Reduce the stigma of mental health issues.

How will I learn?

This Youth MHFA course takes place over two full days.

The sessions will be a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities. Our instructors provide a safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don’t feel comfortable joining in certain parts, then there is no pressure to.

Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some parts particularly difficult.

Who can attend?

The course is for everyone and is relevant for people who teach, work, live with and care for 11 to 18-year-olds, including young people themselves, although parental consent is required below the age of 16.

Cost and booking:

£100 per attendee. Lunch and refreshments provided both days. Please book in advance.
