Virtual: Youth Mental Health First Aid Aware Training (half day training)
|This course will help you to support young people with mental health issues by enabling you to relate better to their experience and developing your skills to work more effectively with young people living with mental health issues.
Participants who complete this half day training session will be certified as Youth Mental Health First Aid Aware.
|By giving you the tools to confidently relate to young people living with mental health issues, this course will support you to create a mentally healthy environment in your school, setting, youth group or in your community, family and peer group. By undertaking this course you will also be able to contribute to creating a culture where talking about feelings is the norm and stigma associated with mental health is reduced.
This course will provide mental health first aid knowledge and skills, it won't teach you to be a therapist, but we will show you how to appropriately listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. You will also be able to advocate for mental health awareness.
We limit numbers to 14 delegates on this face to face course, with a minimum number of 10 so that the instructors can keep people safe and supported while they learn. Learning takes place through a mix of highly interactive group activities, presentations and discussions.
