Event description

Description

Mental Health first Aid is for everyone. Mental Health problems are extremely common with one in four people experiencing some kind of mental health problem in any one year. Depression, stress and anxiety for instance, are widespread problems that affect thousands of people in Wales. Despite this, people do not always feel confident to discuss mental health or to offer the initial support that people need.

In the course of the two-day workshop, MHFA participants learn:

• How to recognise when a person might need help and the best way to approach them.

• How to save a life by learning basic suicide intervention skills.

• What protects your own and other people's mental health.

• Mental Health diagnoses, protocol and signposting. Skills that are essential in every part of daily life.

Mental Health problems are not as frightening as most people think. When a person has a mental health problem what they need most is someone who can:

• Listen calmly to their feelings and fears

• Give some simple and helpful information

• Signpost to where to get appropriate help

The aims of MHFA (Wales) are:

To preserve life.

To provide help to prevent a mental health problem or crisis developing into a more serious state.

To promote the recovery of good mental health.

To provide comfort to a person experiencing distress.

To promote understanding of mental health issues.

The course will provide the knowledge to apply these aims in a real life situation.
