YOUTH MHFA COURSE (AVAILABLE TO YOUTH SECTOR WORKERS ONLY)
Mental health problems frequently first arise in adolescence and young adulthood. Young people have poorer knowledge about mental health and how to get professional help. They are particularly likely to initially need support from adults to get appropriate help. To address this need, a specialist Youth Mental Health First Aid program has been developed. This program is designed to teach adults to assist young people who are developing a mental health problem or who are in a mental health crisis.
