- Day 1 - Tue 17th September 2019
- Day 2 - Thu 19th September 2019
Research has shown (Public Health England) that the children with greater wellbeing and lower levels of mental health issues achieve higher grades, better examination results, better attendance, and drop out of school less frequently.
What the DFE says – Mental health and behaviour in schools November 2018: Schools have an important role to play in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children by developing whole school approaches tailored to their particular needs, as well as considering the needs of individual pupils. It is important that schools promote good mental health wellbeing for all pupils.
The Mental Health First Aid Training aims to provide teachers and other professionals working with young people, the skills and confidence to spot common signs and triggers of mental health issues, as well as the knowledge and confidence to help. Through a mix of presentations, discussions and activities, the course will cover these key topics:
• What is mental health?
• Depression and anxiety
• Suicide and psychosis
• Self-harm and eating disorders
Everyone who completes the 2-day course will receive a copy of the Youth MHFA manual.
