Description

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised two day training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

The Standard MHFA training can be attended by adults aged 16 upwards and is relevant for the general population. 

What will I learn on a two day MHFA course?

What is mental health?

Suicide and depression

_Recognise the signs

_First aid for depression

_How to help a person who is suicidal

Anxiety, eating disorders, and self harm 

-Recognise the signs

_First aid for anxiety

_First aid for eating disorders

_How to help a person who is self harming

Psychosis

_Recognise the signs

-First aid for psychosis


Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the MHFA manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course you will also receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider.

How will becoming a Mental Health First Aider help?

The course will:

_Give a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on and relate to people’s mental health

_Teach practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues

Independent research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course:

_Raises mental health awareness

_Reduces stigma around mental ill health

_Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues

_Encourages people to start a conversation with a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue

_Promotes early intervention which enables recovery

MHFA won’t teach you how to be a therapist, but you will be able to say you’re a Mental Health First Aider. 

This course is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.
