Youth Mental Health First Aid virtual certified training event

About this Event

This course was formally the Two Day Youth Mental Health First Aid course and has been adapted to be delivered virtually by Mental Health England. Please see below for the session details.

Never been to a virtual learning event? It is like an on-line workshop where you can see the trainer, other attendees, you can type questions, draw on whiteboards, meet with others in break out rooms and see a whole host of visual and written resources. You can also simply watch and learn if that’s your preference.

It is simple to join from a smart-phone or PC/tablet. You will be emailed a link that you simply need to click at the time the sessions are taking place. Full details of how to access the course will be sent to you once you have registered.

This course will be a blend of self-learning actives and live interactive sessions with the trainer and other course participants. The total learning time is approximately 15 hours.
