This two day Mental Health First Aiders course provides a more in depth understanding of specific mental health issues and is delivered in four manageable chunks:−

  • Self-harm and eating disorders

It focuses on the issues faced by young people today, such as cyber bullying and substance misuse, and teaches how to promote protective factors.
