Mental health first aid training

Learn how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis
Overview
What is Youth Mental Health First Aid?
Youth Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

At APL Health we offer a two-day course tailored for people who teach, work, live with and care for young people aged 8 to 18. The courses can be attended by anyone from age 16 upwards and will be delivered by our quality assured instructor.

What will I learn?
Our two-day course provides an in depth understanding of specific mental health issues and is delivered in four manageable chunks:
  1. What is mental health?
  2. Depression and anxiety
  3. Suicide and psychosis
  4. Self-harm and eating disorders

It focuses on prominent issues faced by young people today such as cyber bullying and substance misuse, and teaches how to promote protective factors and good parenting.

Completing the two-day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.

How will attending a Youth MHFA course help?
The course will increase awareness around mental health. It will 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.

Research and evaluation shows that taking part in a MHFA course:

  • raises awareness and mental health literacy
  • reduces stigma around mental ill-health
  • boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues
  • promotes early intervention which enables recovery
