Anyone who comes into contact with young people has the opportunity to play an active role in supporting their mental wellbeing. Through this course you will develop the skills and confidence to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. Evidence says that in doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery, stop issues from developing into a crisis, and ultimately save lives. This course will provide mental health first aid skills, it won't teach you to be a therapist, but we will teach you to appropriately listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
