The Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) two day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.

By the end of this course Youth Mental Health First Aiders will have:

  • An understanding of young people's mental health and factors that affect wellbeing.
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues.
  • Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress.
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening.
  • Knowledge to help a young person recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that's through self-help site, their place of learning, the NHS, or a mix - engaging with parents, carers and external agencies where appropriate.
  • Ability to support a young person with a long-term mental health issue or disability to thrive.
  • Tools to look after their own mental wellbeing.

Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Youth Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it,a badge and a certificate
