Online Youth Mental Health First Aid

Online Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

The Online Youth MHFA course is licensed by MHFA England, evidence based, internationally recognised and endorsed by the Royal Society of Public Health. The course is designed specifically for those people that teach, work, live with, or care for young people aged 8 to 18 years.

You will learn how to:

  • Provide information, tools and techniques to promote a young person’s mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Support a young person who might be experiencing mental and emotional distress.

MHFA won’t teach you how to be a therapist, but you will be able to say you’re a Youth Mental Health First Aider.
