Youth Mental Health First Aid – Cardiff
June 13 – 9:00 am – June 14 – 4:30 pm
The 14-hour YMHFA (Wales) course teaches adults how to provide Mental Health First Aid to adolescents
Mental illnesses often start in adolescence or early adulthood and it is important to detect problems early to ensure the young person is properly treated and supported. The YMHFA (Wales) course teaches adults who have frequent contact with adolescents, such as parents, guardians, school staff, sport coaches and youth workers, how to assist adolescents who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
Participants will learn about adolescent development and the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, how and where to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.
