What is Mental Health First Aid?

Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

The training is tailored for people who teach, work, live with and care for young people aged 8 to 18.

We recognise that school staff are best placed to notice subtle changes in behaviour or demeanour of their students. As part of the course, we do teach people how and when to signpost to other organisations to enable schools, for example, to build up their own mental health toolkit. Time is also spent on what should and shouldn’t remain confidential.

The courses can be attended by anyone from age 16 upwards. Each and every YMHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor.

What will you learn?

What you learn will depend on the length of course you attend.

The One day course teaches you how to identify when a young person might be experiencing a mental health issue and how to guide them to get the help they need.

It focuses on the issues faced by young people today, such as cyber bullying and substance misuse, and teaches how to promote protective factors and good parenting.

Completing the one day qualifies you as a YMHFA Champion.

The course is limited to 14 delegates so places are limited!
