Youth Mental Health First Aid
Detailed information on the course content from MHFA England.
The course costs £250 per delegate and is accredited by MHFA England. In addition, Bedazzle is happy to offer a free follow up support meeting or consultation meeting, to those organisations looking to embed Mental Health First Aid within their policies and practices. With the latest reviews of government policy, all schools will be expected to appoint a Mental Health Lead and it will no doubt become a measure of good practice for other youth organisations within the Voluntary and Community Sectors.
