Youth 2 Day Mental Health First Aid

2 Day Online Course

Youth Mental Health First Aid

About this course

This is a 2 day online course delivered through the MHFA England Online Learning Hub.


Learning takes place through four live training sessions, spread across two weeks, with self-learning activities in between.

Two day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider, giving you:


  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix
  • A mix of individual learning and live supported sessions over 2 days.
  • Each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan


We limit numbers to 12 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for teachers, parents and carers supporting young people who want to gain the necessary skills to have a non-judgmental conversation, recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and resources for help and support.


This is not a counselling or therapeutic session, purely around awareness so you can feel more empowered to help someone else.


We look forward to welcoming you.
