Youths will get free mental health courses

Richmond Foundation is offering the Mental Health First Aid Course for youth leaders, coaches and workers. The course of 14 contact learning hours, is being offered free of charge for a limited time as part of an EU funded project.

The course is designed for persons who have frequent contact with young people and is most useful for adults to identify symptoms in young people developing a mental health problem. It may also provide some useful information on how to assist a young person who has a history of mental illness or longer-term mental health problems.

Youth workers interested to take the course can apply now for courses in September and October:

The course is part of the Mental Health First Aid Youth Project ESF 02.0149 being managed in partnership with the Ministry for Education and Employment. The Project is part-financed by the European Union European Social Fund (ESF).
