I will take this opportunity to say that the subject was made easy to understand by the very able tutor .I found it a very full day covering a great deal of information.It was made understandable and memorable with true life illustrations.I would therefore like to pass on thanks and appreciation to Mr Jeff Doidge.

Youth Mental Health First Aid Course - 1 Day
Length: One day
Certification: Youth Mental Heath First Aid Training Course
1 Day Youth Mental Health First Aid Courses are for anyone who works, lives or supports young people aged 8-18 – such as school staff and youth workers.
What you will learn on our 1-day Youth First Aid for Mental Health awareness courses:
- To have the confidence and knowledge to spot symptoms of mental ill health in a young person.
- The ability to offer support and guidance to a young person towards the help they require.
- How to recognise mental health problems and help with early intervention, thereby undertaking to stop a mental health issue from deteriorating.
- Suggestions to decrease the stigma surrounding mental health through education and awareness.
This course will not make you a therapist but it will prepare you to offer reassuring support and guidance when a young person needs it most.
The course should also give you the skills to manage your own mental well-being, enabling you to set an example of a healthy mental environment for young people.
