The FAA Award in First Aid for Youth Mental Health qualification is suitable for anyone who actively connects with children such as parents, carers, teachers, youth group leaders and young adults. The qualification has been designed with children and young people in mind covering areas such as depression, self-harm, eating disorders and bullying and will provide the knowledge and skills to identify a potential mental health condition, start a conversation, and provide support and guidance to professional help.

At present the qualification has only been approved by Ofqual but is currently going through the SQA Accreditation approval process. We hope this will be completed in the next few weeks and will update you when this has been completed.
