:: Mental Health First Aid in schools and colleges ::
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised approach, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health in young people, and provide help on a first aid basis. The training is relevant for people who teach, work, live with and care for children and young people. Schools have expressed that the current funded MHFA provision does not enable enough staff to be trained in this vital approach. This one-day course allows schools to ensure that more staff can receive the training from an accredited trainer. The course will cover: - what mental health and mental ill health is - stigma and discrimination - the five steps of mental health first aid - depression - suicide - resilience - anxiety - self-harm and eating disorders - psychosis - recovery Attendance will be certified by MHFA.
By attending the course, participants will:
  • recognise the symptoms of mental health problems
  • be able to provide initial help
  • be able to guide a young person towards appropriate professional help
  • be mindful of their own wellbeing
  • develop an understanding of how they can create and maintain a healthier and more productive learning environment
