Mental Health First Aid
One in ten young people experience a mental health issue at any one time. Suicide is the leading cause of death for those aged 5-19 .
In an average group of 30 15-year-olds:
Seven are likely to have been bullied
Six may be self-harming
One could have experienced the death of a parent
Record levels of young people are struggling. Academic pressure, social media, bullying, poverty, lack of availability of professional mental health support – all have been named by various sources as contributing to this epidemic of poor mental health in our young people.
It’s clear that young people are not getting the support they need.
Key figures in a young person’s life – parents, family members, teachers, tutors, carers, youth workers – can often spot when a young person is struggling but may not know how best to help.

Feedback | NHS
Lucy is very good at explaining and keeping the energy up, despite the course taking place online. She evokes the idea of safe space, and set out clear guidance for standards at the beginning of session including rationale (privacy, confidentiality) and employed positive reinforcement techniques which validated people when they voiced opinions. Lucy encouraged people to get involved.
There was no pressure and I felt happy to contribute. I feel I learnt a lot and the material was accurate for what it set out to do.
Thank you Lucy!

Gender-Inclusive | Diversity | Inclusion
Using gender-inclusive language makes a big difference in a workplace and/or training environment. It makes everyone feel welcome, no matter their identity and it sets an example that gender-inclusive language is the norm and that no one should assume anything about someone without asking first. We shouldn’t have to leave parts of our identity behind - be that our cultural or ethnic background, sexuality, or health – in any workplace or training environment. It’s important to remember that by putting diversity and inclusion at the centre of mental health and wellbeing, we can create a culture built on respect and collaboration, where everyone can be themselves.
Online courses are delivered through an online platform of your choice.
Learning takes place through live training sessions with self-learning activities in between.
Each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.
People are actively encouraged to keep safe and feel supported while they learn.
Everyone who completes the course gets:
- A certificate of attendance to say you are a Mental Health First Aider
- A manual to refer to whenever you need it
- A quick reference card for the Mental Health First Aid action plan
- A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support your own mental health
