Courses relating to youth emotional wellbeing and mental health
Keen to be a Youth Mental Health First Aider?
Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind have been funded to deliver Youth Mental Health First Aid courses. This is an internationally
recognised course 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.
The Youth MHFA course is split into four manageable chunks. These are:
- What is mental health?
- Depression and anxiety.
- Suicide and psychosis.
- Self-harm and eating disorders.
Within each section there is clear focus on the issues faced by young people, including bullying/cyber bullying and substance misuse.
The course also teaches the importance of promoting wellbeing and protective factors.
The course is free for workers in the Tameside and Glossop areas and is relevant for people who teach, work, live with and care for
8 to 18 year olds. This is a fantastic opportunity for Tameside and Glossop workers as this course normally costs up to £300 per person.
