Dick Moore - Mental Health First Aid

Monday 7th – Friday 11th October 2019

For Leaders of Learning and Welfare, Heads of Year, Counsellors, students and parents

These qualifications provide national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a leader in a school.

Since November 2012, I have been visiting schools, universities and organisations to help raise awareness of mental health issues.  Did you know that 10% of young people are suffering from a diagnosable mental health disorder today? Not only does this mean that a vast number of young people are unhappy, but also that they are underperforming at school, college and in the early stages of their careers. The consequences for families, schools and employers are dire.

And yet mental health remains a largely hidden epidemic. There is SO much more that could be done – that SHOULD be done.

If you are concerned about the emotional wellbeing of someone, help is out there!​​​​​​​​​​  It is just a question of finding it…!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
