Youth Mental Health First Aid Training 2021

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

“Just as you don’t need to be a doctor to offer physical first aid, you don’t need to be a Mental Health professional to deliver Mental Health First Aid.”

Outline
There has never been a more important time to focus on youth mental health. With 1 in 10 children experiencing a mental health issue at any one time, the Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training includes three evidence based courses certified and licensed by Mental Health First Aid England. The courses are for anyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18yrs.

• YMHFA 2 day course will certify participants as Youth Mental Health First Aiders
• YMHFA 1 day course will certify participants as Youth Mental Health First Aid Champions
• YMHFA half day course (virtual and live) will certify participants as Youth Mental Health First Aid Aware
