This is an internationally recognised two-day course specifically designated for those people that teach, work, live with or care for young people aged 8-18. This course teaches participants how to spot the early warning signs and symptoms of mental ill-health in young people. It provides information about topics such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorder, alcohol and drug use and explains the impact that mental ill-health in young people can have on adolescent development. A practical, skills based approach helps participants gain the confidence to offer meaningful support to young people in distress.

At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem in young people
  • Feel confident helping a young person
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help protect a young person  who might be at risk of harm
