New Youth Mental Health First Aid course dates announced for September and October

Chapter is delighted to announce that we have just launched a brand new course Youth Mental Health First Aid.

Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. They will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse.

The course also aims to give you the information and skills to look after your own mental health so that you can set an example for young people. By giving you the tools to have these conversations, we hope to empower you to create a mentally healthy, supportive environment in your family, school, peer group or community.

Let’s create a future where mental health is treated as a normal part of life, in the same way as physical health. A future where every young person has access to support if they need it.

Both courses will be delivered online and you must complete all four sessions to receive accreditation.

Thanks to some funding, we can offer the course at £250 per person.
