    FREE but must be registered to attend.

    What does the course cover?

    "Teen MHFA is an education course that teaches teenagers about the different types of mental health problems and mental health crisis situations in young people. The course teaches participants how to recognise changes in a friends’ thinking, feelings or behaviour that may indicate the presence of a mental health problem, how to offer initial mental first aid support and how to connect them with a trusted adult.

    Topics covered include depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bullying and abuse, intoxication, non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal thoughts and behaviours.

    Teen MHFA focuses on improving the mental health literacy of a whole cohort, to reduce the stigmatising behaviours and attitudes that often prevent teens from getting the help and support they need." - from
