Mental Health First Aid 1 day, Wednesday 26th February 2020, Letchworth

Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. During the course you will gain 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 stop a mental health issue from getting worse.

Our one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies you as a MHFA Youth Champion.

MHFA Champions have: 

  • An understanding of common mental health issues and how they can affect young people
  • Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health and guide them to a place of support
  • Skills to support positive wellbeing

Our courses won't train you to be a therapist, but will give you the skills and confidence to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening. 

Importantly we also 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.
