Lighthouse Resources – Youth Mental Health First Aid
The Youth Mental Health First Aid Course is for adults working or living with adolescents (those aged between 12 and 18 years), however, the course can be relevant for those helping people who are a little younger or older. This course is particularly suitable for parents, teachers, sports coaches, and youth workers.
Delivered in 2 components:
Component 1 – self-paced interactive eLearning (must be completed before component 2). Participants will receive an introduction to mental health, mental health problems and mental health first aid. Each module will cover statistics and facts about the particular mental health problem, how to recognise the signs that someone may be experiencing the problem.
Component 2 will be undertaken over Zoom in a group session.
