For young people aged 5-19, suicide is the most common cause of death. 20% of young people may experience mental ill health in any given year. Statistics also show that more children under the age of 12 are taking anti-depressants than ever before.

Spotting the signs of mental ill health earlier in a person’s life is very important, as 50% of mental health conditions are established by the age of 14.

Key people in a young person’s life such as parents, family members, teachers, tutors, carers, youth workers are often able to spot when a young person is struggling, but don’t know how to help.

Whether you are looking for a Mental Health First Aid course for teachers, work in a social or healthcare setting, or want to know how to support someone through a mental health crisis, you can be there for children and young people with our Youth Mental Health First Aid course.
