Event description
Youth Mental Health First Aid will teach you 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 courses won't teach you to be a therapist - but just like physical first aid, we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.
Learning outcomes
• Recognise the symptoms of mental health problems • Increased skills and knowledge to provide initial help • Knowledge of appropriate professional help • Increased awareness of own wellbeing
