About this Event

This Youth Mental Health First Aid Two-day open course will take place on 16th and 17th December at David Lloyd Leisure, Brierley Hill.

PLEASE NOTE THE ROOM USED FOR THE COURSE IS EXTREMELY LARGE AND SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES ARE IN PLACE

The cost of the course is £195 and includes a manual, workbook and certificate. Price also includes refreshments throughout each day and lunch is provided.

Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches you how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

Youth MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. Every Youth MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

Learn to support young people

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.

Importantly, we aim to give you the information and skills to look after your own mental health so that you can set an example for young people. By giving you the tools to have these conversations, we hope to empower you to create a mentally healthy, supportive environment in your family, school, peer group or community.

Let's create a future where mental health is treated as a normal part of life, in the same way as physical health. A future where every young person has access to support if they need it.

Would you know how to help?

Let’s discuss statistics. One in ten young people experience a mental health issue at any one time. Suicide is the leading cause of death for those aged 5-19.

In an average group of 30 15-year olds:

• 7 are likely to have been bullied

• 6 may be self-harming

• 1 could have experienced the death of a parent

Record levels of young people are struggling. Academic pressure, social media, bullying, poverty, lack of availability of professional mental health support – all have been named by various sources as contributing to this epidemic of poor mental health in our young people.

It’s clear that young people are not getting the support they need. Key figures in a young person’s life – parents, family members, teachers, tutors, carers, youth workers – can often spot when a young person is struggling but may not know how best to help.
