Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. The courses aim to 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/or stop a mental health issue from getting worse.
The five broad topic areas include:
The courses won't teach you to be a therapist, but we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.
The courses aim to give you the information and skills to look after your own mental health so that 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.
