What is Mental Health First Aid? Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognized 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 MHFA England we offer a range of courses 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. Each and every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor. Half Day An introductory course designed to increase awareness of young people’s mental health and some of the issues that can affect this age group. Two Day 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. How will attending a Youth MHFA course help? Each of the courses will increase awareness around young people’s mental health. The two-day courses 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.
