Home / Special Announcements / Teen Mental Health First Aid

 

WSSC very strongly recognises the mental health issues facing many young people.

To strengthen the supports surrounding young people with mental health concerns we are rolling out the Teen Mental Health First Aid course to all Year 10 students. Specialist TMHFA instructors from outside the College will be delivering the course.

Students will not be learning how to diagnose problems rather advice about being a supportive friend, encouraging the friend to seek help, and knowing when it’s time to get an adult involved.

Please download and read the information sheet accessible from the link below which contains more information relating to the course.
