Description

Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised, evidence-based course. This one day mental health skills and awareness course qualifies you as an Adult MHFA Champion.

MHFA Champions have:

  • An understanding of common mental health issues
  • Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health
  • Skills to support positive wellbeing

What will you learn?

  • Other mental health issues (eating disorders, self-harm, psychosis)

The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and workshop activities.

Due to some of the sensitive subjects on the course, numbers are limited to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some parts particularly difficult.

Each participant receives a MH Champion manual, full of useful resources, to take away at the end of the course, and a certificate issued by MHFA England.

DMWS instructors are approved by MHFA England to deliver this training.
