21, 23, 28, 30 June 2021 ONLINE Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA)

 Registration is closed for this event

THIS TRAINING WILL BE DELIVERED LIVE ONLINE VIA MHFA ONLINE LEARNING HUB.

This is Mental Health First Aid England Training. Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18.

This course will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse.

We won’t teach you to be a therapist, but we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis—and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

Most importantly, you will leave with the skills to look after your own mental health so you can set an example for young people. By giving you the tools to have these conversations, we hope to empower you to create a mentally healthy, supportive environment in your family, school, peer group or community.
