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.

If you'd like to sign up you will have to complete 5 online modules (30 mins) with www.e-lfh.org.uk before applying.

They will be utilised by the Learning Improvement and Activity Sub- Group to quality assure relevant training. It should be noted that basic single agency awareness training should not be utilised to negate the requirement for professionals or volunteers in Tameside, whose work brings them into with children and their families, from acquiring or refreshing their Multi-Agency safeguarding knowledge via TSCB’s Multi-Agency Training Offer.
