Two Day Youth Mental Health First Aid

YMCA NorfolkThe training is suitable for anyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. YMCA will train you to have the skills and confidence needed to step in, offer mental health first aid and guide the young person towards the support they need. In doing so, you can help speed up a young person’s recovery, stop issues from developing into a crisis, and ultimately save lives.

We want adults to be able to show young people that mental ill health is a part of life in just the same way as physical ill health, that it’s OK to talk about and it’s OK to ask for help.

The course provides a recognised qualification for teachers, parents and youth workers. The topics covered include:

  • An introduction to mental health
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Eating Disorders and Self-harm
  • Suicide and Psychosis

Course Duration

5 and 12 September 2018

Venue

YMCA Communities Office 7/8 Waldegrave Road, Norwich NR5 9AW
