For professionals and volunteers

We have a selection of training to develop your knowledge and confidence in supporting young people around their mental well-being.

The training gave me an invaluable source of information and useful learning to go forward with

Our courses for people working with children and young people are popular and include the internationally-recognised evidence-based MHFA England Youth Mental Health First Aid.

This covers signs and symptoms of mental ill-health in young people, how to recognise the important links between resilience, emotional needs and demands on time, self-harm and suicide, stress management and more.

Other courses available include a look at behaviours of concern with an autistic perspective, and social anxiety and returning to school after lockdown.

We can also provide some of this training to local teams or groups for free.
