Live Online Training in 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.

The course 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.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure, and respond, even in a crisis.

What will I learn?

Learning takes place through live training sessions and self-learning activities.

This course is a practical skills and awareness course designed to give you:

  • An in-depth understanding of young people’s mental health and factors that affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help a young person recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s through self-help, their place of learning, the NHS, or a mix – engaging with parents, carers and external agencies where appropriate
  • Ability to support a young person with a long term mental health issue or disability, to thrive
  • Tools to look after your own mental wellbeing

Course Format

Hosted on the new MHFA England Online Learning Hub.

The course is divided into 4 sessions. Each session requires you to complete individual learning activities prior to the live training session.

Individual learning will be based on a combination of videos, workbook activities, and reading, which can be done at your own pace in advance of each live training session.

This online course includes materials that are sent out to you in the post. Please allow 5-7 working days for delivery.

The materials include a comprehensive manual, workbook and action card that are used throughout the course.
