Youth Mental Health First Aid Courses

Youth Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised training programme designed specifically for those people that teach, work, live with or care for young people aged 11-18

The training provides information, tools and techniques to promote a young person's mental and emotional wellbeing and to enable participants to support a young person who might be experiencing mental and emotional distress.

The 2 Day Youth MHFA course will teach you how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem in young people
  • Feel confident helping a young person experiencing a problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help protect a young person who might be at risk of harm
  • Help prevent a mental health illness from getting worse
  • Help a young person recover faster
  • Guide a young person towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems

Great Yarmouth and Waveney Mind have been delivering Adult MHFA courses since 2008. We are now pleased to be able to offer Youth Mental Health First Aid alongside our adult MHFA Courses

The course has a deliberate fit with national policy and aims to promote the common assessment framework (CAF), Healthy Schools and Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS). It also has a particular focus on vulnerable groups of young people including looked after children (LAC). The course can be delivered as either two whole days or four half day sessions.
