Event description
2 day Mental Health First Aid course where all proceeds will be donated to local men's mental health charity Sean's Place.

About this Event

This two day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider, giving you:

An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

This course is a great resource for anyone who wishes to improve their knowledge and awareness of spotting the signs of poor mental health or is likely to support someone in this capacity, whether that be a Manager, CEO, carer, family member or anyone else who wishes to improve their knowledge and awareness to help others.

Cost

This course is typically delivered at £300 per person. However, as all proceeds are being directly donated to Sean's Place we have reduced the cost to a charitable price of £240 which includes:

  • All learning materials/ books
  • Lunch on both days
  • Refreshments including tea/coffee and biscuits

Who are Sean's Place?

Sean's Place is a men's mental health charity recently established following the loss of founder Debbie's brother, Sean, to poor mental health in July 2019. Debbie wanted to create something in his memory that would help others who are fighting their own battles with mental health by providing free mental health and well being support such as art therapy, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, fitness classes, cookery sessions, courses, music lessons, health and money advice plus much more.

Sean's Place is also open evenings to allow people who work to also access support outside working hours. They also have a support network for families who are supporting a loved one with their mental health where they can meet others who are also walking in their shoes and gain valuable advice from professionals and other services who can provide support and guidance for their loved one and themselves.
