MHFA Youth Launch

 

Richmond Foundation launched an EU Funded project in conjunction with the Ministry for Education and Employment, which will see Mental Health First Aid Youth being introduced in Malta. Dr Claire Kelly, from Mental Health First Aid Australia was in Malta during this week to train Richmond Foundation staff as Instructors in Mental Health First Aid Youth. Material will be adapted to the Maltese context, translated to Maltese, and used to train young people, educators and employers of young people.

The objective of the course is to enable young people and the adults who are in contact with them to take care of their mental health during adolescence, as well as to take appropriate action when necessary to safe guard young people’s mental health.
