Mental Health First Aid
Figures show over half of mental health problems start by the age of 14 and 75% by 18 and so it stands to reason that early detection and intervention is beneficial for all involved.
This Mental Health First Aid training is designed to teach people how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health in children and young people and provide help on a first aid basis. Completing the two day course, accredited by Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA), qualifies you as an official Mental Health First Aider.
This course will allow you to develop practical skills to identify a range of mental health issues and support a young person to get the help they need. Evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course:
- Raises awareness and mental health literacy
- Reduces stigma around mental ill health
- Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues
- Promotes early intervention which enables recovery
