Over the summer of 2017 Mark Bowles and Ben Lovatt from TTE completed the Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructor Training in London. They will be offering a range of Youth Mental Health First Aid courses from January 2018. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) 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.
The courses available are:
Half Day - Mental Health Aware
An introductory course designed to increase awareness of young people's mental health and some of the the issues that can affect this age group.
One Day - Mental Health Champions
Teaches you how to identify when a young person might be experiencing a mental health issue and how to guide then to get the help they need.
Two Day - Mental Health First Aiders
Provides a more in depth understanding of specific mental health issues and is delivered in four manageable chunks:
- What is Mental Health?
- Depression and Anxiety
- Suicide and Psychosis
- Self Harm and Eating Disorders
It focuses on the 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.
