Description


What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid ( MHFA) Adult course is an educational course which teaches people how to identify, understand and support a person who may be developing a mental health problem. In the same way as we learn about physical first aid, mental health first aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health. 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.

Our 1 day Adult 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.

What will you learn on the course?

One Day - MHFA Champions An awareness and skills course which will teach you to:

− Recognise the main signs and symptoms of common mental health issues

− Provide initial support

− Guide a person towards appropriate professional help

− Be mindful of your own wellbeing

− Develop an understanding of how you can create and maintain a healthier workforce or community

By learning to recognise the signs that someone may be unwell, you may be able to provide initial help, to guide a person towards appropriate professional help, and in its most powerful form, save a life by learning basic suicide intervention skills.

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

Particpants will leave with course workbook & supporitng materials.
