As part of this funding, MMK Mind are able to offer nationally-accredited Mental Health First Aid training for free to young people in both Maidstone and Swale.
This one day course qualifies young people as a Youth MHFA Champion, giving them:
- An understanding of common mental health issues and how they can affect young people
- Ability to spot signs of mental ill health in young people and guide them to a place of support
- Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
- Skills to support positive wellbeing.
There are currently several dates for this training in Maidstone - and young people are encouraged to sign up for this training if they are eager to learn more about mental health through an interactive medium.
