Event description

Description

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Lite is an introductory three hour course designed to raise awareness of mental health issues. The course is for everyone aged 16 and above and you don’t need any qualifications or experience in mental health to take part. MHFA Lite is not intended to replace the two day MHFA training course but is a good introduction to those with an interest in mental health.

It is designed to give you:

  • 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

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.
