Learners must attend both days. Refreshments provided but not lunch. (Cost includes a workbook and manual worth £25 to take away)
The course will increase awareness around young people’s mental health. The two day course will allow you to develop practical skills to identify a range of mental health issues and support a young person to get the help they need.
Research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course: − Raises awareness and mental health literacy − Reduces stigma around mental ill health − Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues − Promotes early intervention which enables recovery
This 2-day course provides a more in depth understanding of specific mental health issues and is delivered in four manageable chunks: − What is mental health? − Depression and anxiety − Suicide and psychosis − Self-harm and eating disorders. 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 two day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.
Session begins at 9.30am.
