Event description

Description

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life.

Become Mental Health First Aid Aware

Fully Funded by Health Education England, supported by Greenwich Health and Bexley CEPN and open to those in the health and social care workforce who work in either borough, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) lite is a training course which awareness to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist – but just like emergency physical first aid teaches you how to preserve life and prevent worsening, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis; and potentially stop a crisis from happening.

On our Adult MHFA Half Day awareness you will gain:

  • An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma
  • A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
  • An introduction to looking after your own mental health
  • Confidence to interact with someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue
  • Insight into the two day course and the benefits of becoming a Mental Health First Aider

What to expect

We limit numbers to 25 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.

You will get an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it. When you complete the session you'll get a certificate to say you are MHFA Aware.

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


Places are offered free of charge to people in the health and social care workforce who work in the London Borough of Bexley or the Royal Borough of Greenwich. There is however a fee of £95 payable for non-attendance with less than 5 days’ notice.
