The Richmond Foundation is offering a course on ‘Mental Health First Aid’ for youth leaders, coaches and workers. The course, being offered free of charge, is for a limited time since it is being offered as part of an EU-funded project.

The Mental Health First Aid course for Youth Leaders consists of 14 contact learning hours.

It is designed for those who are in frequent contact with young people, such as sports coaches, Scouts leaders, youth group leaders and youth workers. It is most relevant in situations where an adult becomes aware of symptoms that might indicate that a young person in their organisation is developing a mental health problem.

However, the course may also provide some useful information on how to help a young person who has a history of mental illness or longer-term mental health problems.

Youth leaders, coaches and youth workers that are interested to take the course need to apply now for courses in September and October.

The course is part of the Mental Health First Aid Youth Project ESF 02.0149 being managed in partnership with the Ministry for Education and Employment. The project is partially financed by the European Union European Social Fund (ESF).
