Our Youth MHFA Two Day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.
Youth Mental Health First Aiders have:
We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. Young people are welcome on the course but if you’re under the age of 16 we need consent from your parent or guardian.
Learning takes place across four manageable sessions. Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Youth Mental Health First Aid action plan. You will get an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it.
When you complete the two days you'll get a certificate to say you are a Youth Mental Health First Aider.
“This course gave me a very good overall insight into young people's mental health. It was delivered very well by a very knowledgeable instructor. The course was well structured and encouraged interaction from all who attended.”
