This includes a Youth MHFA 2 day course designed for people that teach, work, live with or care for young people aged 8 to 18 years.

This course will run on consecutive days, 15th & 16th March, (both days to be attended), at Manor Farm CA.

The Youth MHFA Two Day course qualifies you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.
