Event description
Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised course teaching people how to spot the signs & symptoms of mental ill health.

About this Event

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 MHFA England's Instructor Training programme (learn more at mhfaengland.org), accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

What will I learn?

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

Two Day- Mental Health First Aiders:

A practical skills and awareness course designed to give you:

  • A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing, including your own
  • 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 by guiding them to appropriate support

How will attending an MHFA course help?

Research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course:

  • Raises awareness and mental health literacy
  • Reduces stigma around mental ill health
  • Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues
  • Promotes early intervention which enables recovery

What previous attendees say:

“Thank you for an informative, fascinating and approach-changing course which has helped me feel so much more confident when helping those who may be suffering from mental ill health.”

“I found the course very informative, not only in supporting others but also in looking after my own mental health. Prior to taking the course, I was unsure that I would be the right person to be a mental Health First Aider, especially having experienced mental health first hand and the long road to recovery but the course has not only taught me the right approach and tools to apply for others but also to myself should I experience these feelings again. I have finished the course with a feeling of accomplishment, so thank you.”
