Aimee Gee is a Psychiatric Nurse and Founder of Mindful Mamas workshops
(MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.
Youth MHFA courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18.
You will not be taught how to be a therapist, but will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
Youth Mental Health First Aiders have:
An in depth understanding of young people’s mental health and factors that affect wellbeing
Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress
Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
Knowledge to help a young person recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s through self-help sites, their place of learning, the NHS, or a mix – engaging with parents, carers and external agencies where appropriate
Ability to support a young person with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive
Tools to look after your own mental wellbeing

Mental Health 💜🧠🤯.
♡Something which is very close to my heart and I am passionate about.
♡ I've got lived experience, family experience , and 13 years clinical experience as a psychiatric nurse which includes Children's and adolescents mental health services.
♡I am so passionate about making a difference for the next generation, and optimistic that if more people are trained in mental health awareness then the better the prognosis will be . As we can intervene early on in someone's life , instead of them experiencing a life of pain, which in turn will mean a reduction in suicide and mental health related deaths .
Much love to you all , thanks for showing an interest. I look forward to meeting you . Aimee x
