Nottingham Mental Health Awareness Weeks 09th Oct-22nd Oct

In line with Nottingham’s  Mental Health Awareness Weeks Let’s Talk Training are running a Mental Health Workshop at our NEW offices.

This CPD-accredited course will develop your knowledge and understanding of mental health conditions, explore what influences mental wellbeing, learn first aid provision for various conditions, and understand the importance of recovery and support.

The course uses a variety of interactive tools to build delegates’ confidence in reducing the stigma around mental health, providing initial support, and effectively signposting individuals to specialist services. This includes awareness and skills around suicide intervention.

Level 2 (intermediate) training is suitable for anyone with some existing understanding of mental health conditions, specifically frontline staff.

Training sessions to break the stigma around self harm

Last week Harmless welcomed 12 lovely delegates for a full day of self harm awareness training. All 12 work with young people, and the training generated a lot of discussion around how we best support children who are struggling with issues around self harm.

We know that school staff work tirelessly to support the young people they work with every day, and that self harm is on the increase. There have been recorded rises in self harm A & E admissions for young people, and we know that suicide is the leading cause of death for young people in the UK.Anything we can do to continue to break the stigma to enable children to talk openly about their distress is going to support our vision to save lives. Training is just one small part of that.

Thank you to the delegates who attended, asked questions, shared their experiences and reminded me that we are very fortunate to have some excellent support for young people in our local schools and colleges.

Youth MHFA is a course aimed at people who come into contact with young people aged 8 to 18. The 2 day workshop will be delivered by a fully trained certified MHFA Trainer.

Course Aims:

  • Preserve life
  • Prevent deterioration of any injury or illness
  • Promote healing and recovery
  • Provide comfort to the ill or injured.

What are the main benefits of Youth MHFA for me?

Youth MHFA will give you the skills to be able to support young people with mental conditions in crisis. While you will be unable to diagnose mental health conditions, Youth MHFA teaches you how to recognise symptoms of mental ill health, how to support someone in a crisis using an effective model enabling a young person to access appropriate professional help. You will also learn that recovery is likely and indeed possible.

Why is Youth MHFA beneficial to my organisation?

This is not just a training course to take and forget. Independent research shows that up to 88% of people use the first aid skills they learn during the course at least once.

  • Your direct actions will help young people to recover faster from mental and emotional health problems – and some of you will even help to prevent suicides.
  • Suicide is the second most common cause of death for those aged 15 – 24
  • Youth MHFA has been designed and proved to equip you with the right skills to help others  
  • Youth MHFA teaches you how to approach those difficult conversations or situations
  • Provides helpful tips to improve your own mental wellbeing
  • Having conversation about mental health helps to break down the barriers of stigma, discrimination and social inequalities

Summer Briefings for Education Safeguarding Leads in Lincoln

Last week marked the first two of five Summer Briefings for Education Safeguarding Leads in Lincoln. We joined forces with Lincolnshire County Council, Digital Media Edge and NSPCC to talk about how we can support their staff, young people they work with and parents and carers. Both days were informative and rewarding offering many new and hopeful working relationships as well as enabling Harmless and the Tomorrow project to offer provision to a client group that would not necessarily have been reachable.
