Description

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Our Youth MHFA course is an internationally recognised course designed specifically for those people that teach, work, live with or care for young people aged 8 to 18 years.

You will learn how to:

  • Provide information, tools and techniques to promote a young person’s mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Support a young person who might be experiencing mental and emotional distress.

MHFA won’t teach you how to be a therapist, but you will be able to say you’re a Youth Mental Health First Aider.

What will I learn?

Our Youth Mental Health First Aid (Youth MHFA) Training course is split up into 4 manageable modules. These are:

  • What is mental health?
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Suicide and psychosis
  • Self harm and eating disorders

You will also cover other topics specific to young people that include child and adolescent development, bullying/cyber bullying, substance misuse and promoting protective factors and good parenting.

In each section you’ll learn how to:

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