Being able to notice, support and respond to students with mental health issues is a critical skill for educators today. The Youth Mental Health First Aid training teaches the skills you need to help someone you are concerned about and is suitable for educators who work with adolescents.
Mental Health First Aid is early intervention for mental health problems. It teaches people to recognise the signs and symptoms which suggest a potential mental health problem and how to refer appropriately. It is not designed as a prevention program nor is it a mental health promotion program, although course participants may experience beneficial mental health effects from completing mental health first aid training.
The course addresses specific categories of mental ill-health such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance misuse, psychosis and how to deal with crises in young people. It includes how to recognise and assist an adolescent who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based action plan.
The cost of the course includes access to the online course, face to face training (one day), a copy of the Youth Mental Health First Aid Manual and a certificate of accreditation for those who complete all the required training.
Audience: School leaders, wellbeing leaders and educators who support student mental health
