Youth Mental Health First Aid course

The Youth Mental Health First Aid course equips adults who teach, care for and support young people with the skills and confidence needed to recognise and respond to a young person experiencing a mental health problem or crisis.

Developed for adults to support young people aged 12-18, Youth Mental Health First Aid training teaches participants how to provide initial support to a young person who may be experiencing a mental health problem, or mental health crisis, until professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan.

Topics covered include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance Use Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Panic Attacks
  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviour.

The course will be delivered as a blended course and consists of a self-paced eLearning component (approximately 4 hours) followed by one day face-to-face session on Monday 17 April,  Magpies Waitara Club, 11-37 Alexandria Parade, Waitara
