We are proud to announce that our YMCA Key College is now offering MHFA England’s internationally recognised course in Youth Mental Health First Aid. It’s a two-day course and participants are fully certified on completion.

Young people are struggling with poor mental health. Causes include; academic pressure, social media, bullying, poverty and a lack of availability of professional mental health support. YMCA Derbyshire is passionate about ensuring young people receive the right support and committed to reducing poor mental health. One way to achieve this goal is to ensure more individuals and professionals are Mental Health First Aid trained.
