Mental Health Support Training on Offer

Since the beginning of the Nurturing the Future project in September 2020 POINT has been delivering youth mental health first aid training monthly on licence with Mental Health First Aid Wales.Trainees have included much of the Pembrokeshire County Council Youth Service, staff from Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, third sector staff and volunteers from a wide range of organisations as well as members of the local community.

POINT provides opportunities for young people in North Pembrokeshire to acquire the confidence, self-esteem and skills to overcome the obstacles they may encounter on their journey from childhood to adulthood.

It is now able to offer parents/carers and guardians an opportunity to have youth mental health first aid training for free. This e-learning teaches adults how to provide mental health first aid to young people who are developing a mental health problem or who are in crisis. The webinars take place with other learners in a safe online space facilitated by POINT staff who are trained Instructors.

89% of participants surveyed have reported feeling more able to support young people with their mental health. Here is what some participants say:

“Fantastic, practical training which allowed for discussion with others. The content was easy to digest and will be invaluable on a daily basis. Everyone should do this training!

All of my thoughts and feelings were taken into account and I felt listened to by everyone.”
