Course Overview

Safeguarding Young Minds

Mental health challenges do not spare the young. Recent studies by the Office for National Statistics show that approximately 10% of young people experience mental health conditions that are clinically recognisable.

Are you equipped to recognise and address mental health concerns among the children and adolescents you interact with? Do you know the signs that indicate a decline in mental well-being?

It is advised that you train at least two staff members (ideally of different genders) in Mental Health First Aid to ensure diverse perspectives and approaches.

About the Course

Our Child & Adolescent Mental Health First Aid course, endorsed by the FAIB (First Aid Industry Body), offers profound insights into the mental health issues that affect younger individuals. You’ll develop the skills necessary to intervene and provide support effectively.

The course encompasses detailed instruction, practical scenario-based learning, and open Q&As, all conducted in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Participants will receive a recognised certificate and a comprehensive mental health workbook.

We provide flexible training options, including on-site and at our dedicated training facilities, with both 1-day and 2-day programmes available to suit your depth of training needs.
