Nineteen of our Sixth Form students recently attended a Youth Mental Health First Aid Lite course (Youth MHFA Lite) which was hosted here at Beckfoot and facilitated by the company Saltaire Training 4 Life.
The course was a three hour nationally recognised, accredited, certificated course. It outlined many common mental health issues, gave advice and strategies on how to deal with, support and seek help for young people with mental health issues.
It equipped the students with ways to promote good mental health and wellbeing and provided them with an array of contact details for various agencies. All the students that attended had an interest in following a career path which encompasses mental health.
