MHFA for Schools and Colleges

What is MHFA for Schools and Colleges?
MHFA for Schools and Colleges has been designed especially with schools in mind. Based on the Youth MHFA course but targeted to meet the needs of educational environments, MHFA Schools will cover key topics around young people’s mental health and wellbeing, with a strong practical focus on how support young people experiencing mental distress. Whilst the course is not a replacement for the 2 day Youth MHFA course, delegates will become Champions for better mental health in schools.

The session will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities.

We won’t make you do something you aren’t comfortable with.
