What is the Youth Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course?
The YMHFA course expires after 3 years. Hence the Youth Mental Health Refresher course. The refresher course recaps and refreshes the skills from the YMHFA course as well as bringing you up to speed on the latest developments in mental health.
Once the Refresher course is complete, you have a further 3 years’ YMHFA accreditation.
Course Content for Youth Mental Health Refresher
Basically, the course updates and renews the skills and knowledge learned in the YMHFA course and covers the following:
- ALGEE – the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan
- Crisis responses
- Latest research and developments in Mental Health First Aid
