During this two-day Youth Mental Health First Aid course, you’ll learn about the signs and symptoms of the common mental health challenges experienced by young people, what sort of help has been shown by evidence-based research to be effective, and how to provide mental health first aid in a crisis situation.
Topics will include
Depression, anxiety problems, psychosis, eating disorders, substance use problems, suicidal thoughts and behaviours, and psychosis and more.
On completion of post- course assessment, participants will be accredited as a Youth Mental Health First Aider for 3 years.
You’ll also be entitled to a 30% discount off the Youth Mental Health First Aid Refresher course in 3 years’ time when you enrol to extend your accreditation for a further 3 years.
Who is this course for?
The Youth Mental Health First Aid Course is for adults working or living with adolescents (those aged between 12 and 18 years), however, the course can be relevant for those helping people who are a little younger or older. This course is particularly suitable for parents, teachers, sports coaches, and youth workers.
This course is not a therapy or support group, it is an education course to learn how to give mental health first aid to others.
