Youth Mental Health First Aid
Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18.
We will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse.
The project will focus on young adults identifying as women from minority ethnic backgrounds as they are underrepresented in sports participation and leadership. Supporting female sports leaders may encourage those who would prefer to train in female-only environments as well as provide role models for others to get involved.
We would include:
Skills Builder sessions: using the Skills Builder Universal Framework, where the participants will be able to engage and learn how to build essential skills that they need to succeed. The skills they will learn are in high demand from educators, employers and entrepreneurs. The skills will be broken down into teachable, tangible chunks, to enable all levels of learning.
Community Sport Leaders Award Level 1 and or 2: a nationally recognised qualifications, that enable learners to lead groups of people in sport / physical activity. This award supports the participants to be more confident, experienced, community minded, ambitious, independent and employable.
