Mental Health First Aid (Youth one day training)
With ISI and Ofsted’s increased focus on considering a school’s approach to mental health and wellbeing, it is becoming increasingly apparent that all staff will benefit from a greater awareness of pupils mental health and wellbeing and the first aid incorporated withing this intensive one day course will be very helpful.
Delegates will increase their knowledge and understanding of topics such as anxiety, depression, self harm, eating disorders and suicide and the training will ensure an awareness of the MHFA Action Plan which includes knowing how to approach a young person with mental health challenges, assessing and assisting with crisis as well as gaining a greater awareness of appropriate professional help, other supports and learning the skills involved in listening non-judgementally.
There will be ample opportunity to share best practice and discuss current challenges which exist in our schools.
All delegates will receive a comprehensive course manual, workbook, MHFA action plan and certification as an MHFA Champion.
