This is an internationally recognised and certificated Youth Mental First Aid training delivered by certified Mental Health First Aid England instructors.

Do you work with Young people in Hackney?

Do you want to learn how to promote a young person’s mental and emotional wellbeing?

Then attend this course which will provide you with the information, tools, and techniques you need to support a young person who might be experiencing mental and emotional distress.

The course is split into the following four sections:

  • What is mental health?
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Suicide and psychosis
  • Self-harm and eating disorders

Within each section, there is a clear focus on the issues faced by young people, including bullying/cyber-bullying and substance misuse. The course also teaches the importance of promoting well-being and protective factors.

Learning outcomes
Each section will teach you how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health issue in young people
  • Feel confident helping a young person experiencing mental ill health
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help protect a young person who might be at risk of harm
  • Help prevent a mental health issue from getting worse
  • Guide a young person towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health issues

The sessions will be a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities. You will be provided with the Youth MHFA manual and workbook. At the end of the course, you will also receive a certificate confirming you are a trained Youth Mental Health First Aider.
