Event description
MHFA Half Day for Hackney frontline professionals

About this Event

Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest has partnered with Hackney Council to deliver MHFA training to frontline professionals who work in Hackney

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.

Who is this course for?

This course is for frontline professionals, who regularly come into contact with those most at risk of experiencing poor mental health. By reserving a ticket you confirm that you work within Hackney.

What will I learn?

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