Youth Mental Health First Aid Training 2 day course

BEP Mental Health & Wellbeing
Spread over two days Starting Tuesday 11th February 2025

The Youth Mental Health First Aid 2 day course is an internationally recognised training course designed to teach Primary and Secondary colleagues how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health in young people and provide help on a first aid basis. The focus is on promoting young people’s emotional wellbeing and the factors that help safeguard and protect them. 

What will I learn?

The training is designed to fit into four manageable chunks:

  • About mental health and young people

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Suicide and psychosis

  • Self-harm and eating disorders

Within each section there is clear focus on the issues faced by young people today, including bullying/cyberbullying and substance misuse. The course also teaches the importance of promoting protective factors and good parenting.

Everyone will receive a copy of the Youth MHFA manual which is an excellent support resource and when you have completed the course you will be a Youth Mental Health First Aider.

How will it help?
The course will:

  • Give a deeper understanding around the issues that relate to young people’s mental health

  • Teach practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues.

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

  • Raises awareness and mental health literacy.

  • Reduces stigma around mental ill-health.

  • Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues.

  • Encourages people to start a conversation with a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

  • Promotes early intervention which enables recovery.
