Mental Health First Aid is an initial response to distress and is the help given to a person before appropriate professional help or treatment can be obtained.

This one-day course with online learning is relevant for anyone who supports young people aged 11-17. This includes, for example, parents, teachers, school nurses, youth workers, mentors, sports coaches, and social workers. Developed by NHS Health Scotland, is an evidence-based course for adults supporting young people aged between 11 and 17 years old.
