Event description

Description

What is mental health first aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

About the course

Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions.

It is a practical skills and awareness course designed to give you:

  • A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing, including your own

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support

Courses range from 8-16 participants and full attendance of the 2 days is required to qualify for certification. The course is valued at £300 and includes a course manual. Group discounts may apply if you get in touch.

Timings

The course runs from 9am-5pm both days. Tea and coffee will be provided. It is essential to arrive on time and attend all of the course. Please contact me prior to booking if this will not be possible.
