Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Congratulations to 10 members of our staff who are now fully trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid. A range of teaching staff, support staff and admin staff worked over a number of weeks with Mental Health First Aid England and Cygnus to receive the accreditation.

As a globally recognised training course, Youth MHFA is designed to teach staff, volunteers and parents alike how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health. The training gives people the skills and confidence to safely address mental health issues in young people aged 8 to 18, with a strong practical focus on how to support a young person experiencing mental distress.

We would like to offer parents the opportunity to access this training. Please email our Student Standards and Support Co-ordinator, Jen Ballantyne if you are interested
