ILA - Youth Mental Health First Aid 2-Day Programme by MHFA Nederland, 9 November | Event in The Hague | AllEvents.in ILA - Youth Mental Health First Aid 2-Day Programme by MHFA Nederland
This training gives people the skills and confidence to safely address mental health issues in young people aged 8 to 18.

About this Event

As a globally recognised 2-day training course, Youth MHFA is designed to teach staff, volunteers and parents alike how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health. The training gives people the skills and confidence to safely address mental health issues in young people aged 8 to 18, with a strong practical focus on how to support a young person experiencing mental distress. All courses are delivered by an experienced associate instructor who has attended the seven day instructor training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health. Our quality assured associates have been recruited due to their diverse backgrounds in education and youth work, experience in mental health, and ability to engage and motivate participants.

Who it's for

International school staff working and/or who teaches or cares for 8 to 18-year-olds. This programme is delivered by MHFA Nederland but will be delivered in English and with an English contextual bias.  If you would like the programme in Dutch, please contact  https://www.mhfa.nl/.

Capacity

We limit numbers to 14 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. Learning takes place across four manageable sessions. Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Youth Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Everyone who completes the course gets:
  • A Youth MHFA manual to refer to whenever they need it (the manual recommends some English organisations that offer support; we will provide additional materials for the Dutch system)
  • A certificate to say they are a Youth Mental Health First Aider

 

What you will learn
  • An in depth understanding of young people’s mental health and factors that affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help a young person recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s through self-help sites, their place of learning, the NHS,
