Improve mental health awareness with our 3 hour course

It is designed to give: 

  • An understanding of some of the common mental health issues affecting young people, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders and psychosis 
  • Skills to work more effectively with young people living with mental health issues 
  • Ways to support young people with a mental health issue and relate to their experiences

Our courses won't teach you to be a therapist, but we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.  

But more than that, we aim to give you the information and skills to look after your own mental health so that you can set an example for young people. By giving you the tools to have these conversations, we hope to empower you to create a mentally healthy, supportive environment in your family, school, peer group or community.
