Youth Mental Health First Aid

Awarding Body: Street Games

Venue: Haxby Road Sports Centre (HX116)

Date: 20 November 2019

Time: 1000-1300

Cost: £50

Mental health is just as important to our overall wellbeing as physical health, in some cases more so, yet we tend to pay far less attention to it. The mental health of young people is particularly important. Half of all long-term mental illness in adulthood starts by 15 and three quarters by 18. 
Youth workers and coaches can do a great deal to prevent this, without being experts. We train to give physical first aid without hesitation – so why not mental first aid too? 
Local authorities up and down the country see mental health as their top priority. They know that ignoring the problem is unaffordable because of the impact on the economy: young people with mental health problems find it harder to get or stay in work, they are more likely to get into legal trouble and will need more attention from their GP or hospital. Interventions, such as Mental Health First Aid, are both evidence-based and cost-effective.
Training your volunteers and coaches is money well spent and will allow your organisation to make a vital contribution to the health of the local population.

What Is It About?
Learners will explore the most common mental health conditions experienced by young people and discover what youth and sport workers can do to prevent and/or intervene when needed. The ‘Lite’ version provides a taster of the content for the ‘Full’ course. Learners on the full course cover topics such as child and adolescent development, bullying and cyber bullying, substance misuse and protective factors.

Learners will be able to:

  • challenge the discrimination surrounding mental health
  • define mental health & common issues
  • relate to other people's experiences
  • look after their own mental health
  • protect a young person who may be at risk
  • spot the signs of mental health issues in young people
  • give help, support and guidance to any young person who needs it

Who Is It For?
Volunteers, coaches and project managers
