Youth Mental Health First Aid

Details

This is an ACWA endorsed CPD program offered by Ultimate Youth Worker.

This 14-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course is for adults working or living with adolescents. The course teaches adults how to assist adolescents who are developing a mental illness, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

Participants learn about adolescent development, the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems in young people, where and how to get help when a young person is developing a mental illness, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is delivered via public face to face sessions and can also be run for your organisation specifically.
