Over the next two weeks, four additional members of the teaching staff are attending ‘The Youth Mental Health First Aid Course’. The course is run by accredited Mental Health Foundation trainers and is recognised across the world. It is designed to help those who work with young people to identify and support young people in challenging times.
The course teaches attendees the skills to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, we can speed up a young person’s recovery and help to stop a mental health issue from getting worse.
At Mill Hill International School we want our pupils to know that they always have someone that they can talk to.
