Well I am delighted to announce that I have now been signed off by MHFA England as an Approved MHFA Instructor to deliver MHFA Youth. This workshop is aimed at anybody working/involved with children and young people (aged 8 – 18). The workshop is delivered over 16 hours (usually two full days) and is split into 4 manageable chunks. These are
• What is mental health?
• Depression and anxiety
• Suicide and psychosis
• Self-harm and eating disorders
After co-delivering this workshop with Jane Jefferson of Big Ambitions, Doncaster to attendees from the Thorne and Moorends area, I am convinced that this workshop should be accessible to those wanting to understand more about how they can identify, understand and help a young person who may be developing a mental health problem.
I have already organised dates for North Lincolnshire which are shown on the calendar. If you are interested in attending, please do not hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, if you would like to see this training available in your area, contact me.
