    Would you know how to help?

    The Youth Mental Health First Aid course is for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. We will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person and guide them towards the support they need.

    We know that record levels of young people are struggling with their mental health, trying to cope with home schooling, with limited access to their usual support network of friends, clubs and activities. It is so important that we focus on the emotional wellbeing of children and young people during the ongoing restrictions.

    We will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

    But more than that, we 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.

    Let’s create a future where mental health is treated as a normal part of life, in the same way as physical health. A future where every young person has access to support if they need it.

    Interested? Our next course starts on Monday 1st February, and also on Monday 15th March. Click here for full details and book online
