We have some new sessions available, and more to look out for in the upcoming months.  Here's what's on now:

   Scotland's Mental Health First Aid for Young People


The course is aimed at adults working or living with young people aged between 11 and 18 years old who may be at risk of developing mental health problems. The course is for teachers, youth workers, sports coaches, support workers, parents and others assisting young people in a variety of settings. 

The aim of the course is to better understand mental health, how it affects young people, and to learn mental health first aid skills. 

Mental health first aid can be applied, in a crisis and non-crisis situation, to a range of common and less common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, eating disorders, suicide, self-harm or substance use.


The whole course should take up to 14 hours and is divided into 3 parts.

The NHS Virtual Learning Environment is used for the online parts of the training course (parts 1 and 3) which complement the one day face-to-face session known as Part 2.

To obtain a certificate of completion and to be able to successfully use the intervention skills learnt, participants will be required to complete all 3 parts of the course.


The course is not about:

·      diagnosing mental illness

·      becoming a mental health expert

·      counselling

·      mental health first aid for adults

“Scottish Mental Health First Aid: Young People” will help participants:

·      preserve life

·      provide a listening ear

·      pass on useful resources
