The Online MHFA Youth Course
In response to the COVID- 19 pandemic and the inability to run face-to-face courses, MHFA England has launched a new Online version of their Two Day Mental Health First Aider Course. This course will qualify you as a Mental health first Aider and you will receive certificate on completion of the course,
The Council of European Jamaats is pleased to be running this course for anyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. This training is for the adults in a young person’s life to equip them with the skills and confidence to step in, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they may need. This can speed up a young person’s recovery, stop issues from developing into a crisis.
The new online version of the Two Day courses delivers the same evidence-based learning outcomes of the popular ‘face-to-face’ Adult and Youth MHFA Two Day courses in an accessible and flexible online format.
It will help you learn how to provide support and signposting to professional services and self-help to further support their recovery.
The course is structured around a blend of individual learning and live instructor-led sessions. These are all conducted online via the new Online Learning Hub developed by MHFA England. The online learning hub is an integrated learning platform where you can access learning materials, communicate with your instructor and join the live sessions.
The total learning time for the Online Mental Health First Aid course is the same as the MHFA Two Day face-to-face course. The course is made up of four instructor-led live sessions of approximately 2.5 hours. Prior to each of these sessions there are pre-learning activities for you to complete, which will take between 1-2 hours. The pre-learning material is comprised of reading, videos and activities for you to engage with and this information is then discussed and consolidated within the live sessions.
The dates and times for these sessions are:
Sat 10 October 9:00 -11:30 am
Sun 11 October 9:00-11: 30 am
Mon 12 October 7:00-9:30 pm
