The SMHFA: YP course, developed by NHS Heath Scotland, is an evidence-based course for adults supporting children and young people between the ages of 11-17. Participants will gain increased knowledge and awareness of mental health issues as well as improved confidence in:
- Being able to detect problems early
- Helping to reduce stigma around mental health issues
- Helping young people to recognise problems
- Providing guidance and immediate assistance to a young person in crisis
The SMHFA: YP course is a 14-hour blended learning training course. The term ‘blended’ means that the course is a mixture of self-study (3 + 4 hours), which is undertaken online using NHS Health Scotland’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) together with a one-day (7 hours) face to face component. All participants receive a 185 page SMHFA manual with resources and additional information.
