Youth Mental Health First Aid 2 day course

This event is currently full. However you can register now and get added to a waiting list. You will be notified if spaces become available.
This course will give you an in-depth understanding of young people’s mental health and the factors that affect mental wellbeing.

 

This course will train adults to have the skills and confidence to step in, offer first aid and guide young people towards the support they need. In doing so, they can speed up a young person’s recovery, stop issues from developing into a crisis, and ultimately save lives. Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is aimed at organisations working with young people aged 8-18. This training is for Kensington & Chelsea Voluntary organisations.

This training will be delivered by an experienced and accredited MHFA trainer from Kensington & Chelsea MIND

This is a 2-day course that will take place on Thursday 7th March and Thursday 14th March from 9.30am to 5pm.

  • An in-depth understanding of young people’s mental health and factors that affect mental wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills, such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help a young person with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive
