First Aid for Youth Mental Health

This qualification is for anyone who engages with young people. This may include teachers, carers and youth group leaders, as well as young adults who want to actively learn how to help their peers, or be more aware of the issues surrounding mental wellbeing.

This qualification will focus on the mental wellbeing of our younger people in society, covering areas including depression, self-harm, eating disorders and bullying.  This qualification provides the knowledge and skills on how to understand and identify a potential mental health condition. 

This course allows delegates to correctly identify potential health conditions, and will further develop their understanding of the support available when conditions are recognised. We do not teach our students how to diagnose or treat mental health conditions, as our learners will not be healthcare professionals.
