The Grey Dog Trust provide free Youth Mental Health First Aid training to state schools, youth groups and other not for profit youth organisations. (There is a charge of £20 per trainee for manuals and workbooks)
We will also run courses throughout the year for individuals interested in becoming Youth Mental Health First Aiders. These courses will be priced at £150 per person.
The Grey Dog Trust have a small team of Youth MHFA Instructors approved by MHFA (England)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
