Event description

Description

84% of managers think employee wellbeing is their responsibility, but only 24% have received any training. If Mental Health affects the way we think, feel and act at work, isn't it something we need to better understand?

Mental Health First Aid is now part of workplace Health and Safety guidance. Ambitious and progressive companies that want to get ahead of potential legislative change can respond now by putting employees on this course, which will qualify them as Mental Health First Aiders.


This rewarding two-day course will qualify you as a Mental Health First Aider and give you the skills and confidence to effectively support your people. MHFA will not teach individuals to be therapists but, just like physical first aid, it will teach them to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, and emphasis is placed on practical skills, raising awareness and building confidence.


The course is designed to give individuals:
  • a deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing, including their 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; and
  • knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support.
Topics covered include the continuum of mental health, stress, anxiety, depression, suicide, personality disorders, eating disorders, self-harm, psychosis, the framework for applying MHFA in each situation, and recovery.

You will learn how to spot the signs of common Mental Health conditions, how to have conversations about mental health and how to build a more open organisational culture that values and gets the most out of your people.
