Mental Health Awareness Training for Education Professionals
Children’s mental health is a serious area of concern – around 10% of children are now reported to have a diagnosable mental health condition and of these, most report delays in accessing appropriate help.
This Mental Health Awareness Training for Education Professionals (Including teachers and other school staff) aims to raise awareness of mental health in schools, and how to understand and recognise the causes, symptoms and support options for a range of common and less-common mental health problems, whilst breaking the stigma surrounding ill-mental health.
‘Mental Health and Me’- Student Workshops
Our mental health workshops include a range of interactive activities to build resilience and raise awareness of mental health along with information on specific mental health issues. Workshops are tailored around the needs of the school and can be general mental health awareness workshops or be focused on a specific issue e.g. self-harm.
The 4 week programme is delivered by experienced facilitators. 1 hour per week for a month. The school would select 10-15 students who they feel will benefit from this programme and commit to the 4 weeks.
Youth Mental Health First Aid Course (MHFA) for Education Professionals
This course is for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. They 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.
Our courses won’t teach you to be a therapist, but we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
