Mental Health First Aid (Youth) is an Internationally accredited training programme for young people to acquire a skill set which supports their own resilience/ wellbeing as well as that of their peers.
The aim is to develop young people’s capacity to be a first point of support for others experiencing anxiety, stress or distress before they are referred on to appropriate services.
This course addresses all the questions that young people have in a safe space to help them get the right facts and respect for themselves and others. Understanding ourselves through our relationships with friends, family, community, the ups and downs of closeness and heartbreak, learning to trust , cope and hope is what we talk about...
In partnership with the Tutu Foundation UK, LLG designs and delivers training for community cohesion and peace building activities. This work is informed by the South African concept of Ubuntu which promotes core values based on our common humanity and was the basis of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission post apartheid.
Through this young people gain an iTOL peer coaching qualification.
