The Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training is also a 2 day course which like the adult course provides an in-depth understanding of mental health and common mental health issues, with a more specific focus on the issues faced by young people today, including bullying/cyber bullying, body image problems and substance misuse. The course also teaches the importance of promoting protective factors and good parenting. The course will increase awareness around young people’s mental health and 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.
