One-day Youth Mental Health First Aid Training Course

Developed by MHFA England, this one-day course qualifies delegates as youth mental health first aid champions. Attendees will be able to identify common mental health illnesses and understand how they can affect young people. The course gives delegates the capacity to recognise symptoms of mental ill health in a young person and lead them to the support they need

Who should attend?

The course is for those who want to learn more about mental health issues and the support on offer to young people. It teaches techniques on how to work more effectively with young people who live with a mental illness.

**Please be aware that this course covers subjects that some people may find distressing, including suicide and self-harm. If a delegate feels overwhelmed they can leave the course at any time.

However, if you feel in advance that this subject may be too distressing for the delegate please do not book them on without first asking them whether they would feel comfortable attending. If the delegate is unsure whether MHFA is right for them, please encourage them to 
contact us to discuss their concerns. For support with your mental health, please contact Samaritans on 116 123, or NHS 111.**
