Event description

Description

Would you know how to help?

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.

Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don't tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. This means that people may not know how to support a friend, family member or colleague experiencing a mental health issue, or where to go for support with their own mental health.

The 2 day Adult Mental Health First Aid Course

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England training course teaches you to spot the signs of mental health issues, offer initial help & guide a person towards support. You won’t be a therapist, but you will learn to listen, reassure & respond to someone even in a crisis - & even stop a crisis from happening.

The Adult MHFA 2 day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider!

Mental Health First Aiders have:

  • A good understanding of mental health & the factors that can affect wellbeing

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health through guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS or a mix.

The course is very popular in raising the mental health agenda in the workplace or for self-development & knowledge around mental health & wellbeing.
