Course description

Who should attend?

The course is for those who want to learn more about mental health issues and the support on offer to young people. It teaches techniques on how to work more effectively with young people who live with a mental illness.

Please be aware that this course covers subjects that some people may find distressing, including suicide and self-harm. If an attendee feels overwhelmed they can leave the course at any time.

If you feel in advance that this subject may be too distressing for the attendee please do not book them on without first asking them whether they would feel comfortable attending.

If the attendee is unsure whether mental health first aid is right for them, please encourage them to contact us to discuss their concerns.

For support with your mental health, please contact Samaritans on 116 123, or NHS 111.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). Whilst we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
