This training will be delivered via zoom and/or face to face at a location in Lancashire you will be advised of this when booking

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches people how to identify, understand and help a young person aged 11—18 who may be developing a mental health issue. Developed in Australia in 2000 by Mental Health First Aid and now internationally recognised in 23 countries.

In the same way as we learn physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health.

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

Our Youth MHFA course is split into four manageable chunks.

These are:

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

Within each section there is clear focus on the issues faced by young people, including bullying/cyber bullying and substance misuse.

The course also teaches the importance of promoting wellbeing and protective factors.

In each section you’ll learn how to:

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

The sessions will be a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities. Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the Youth MHFA manual and workbook.

When you have completed the course you will receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained Youth Mental Health First Aider.
