Event description
MHFR is a one-day course that equips people to provide practical first-stage help to individuals experiencing mental distress.

About this Event

Our training solution is Mental Health First Responder (MHFR), a one-day course co-authored by a Chartered Psychologist and an Occupational Resilience Specialist, now being used within the NHS and proudly forming part of an award winning UK Health and Wellbeing strategy.

MHFR equips people to provide practical first-stage help to individuals experiencing mental distress.

With expert face to face delivery, learning materials and excellent support, the course is devoted to the practical aspects of supporting colleagues with mental health conditions - or simply those in distress from breaking down the stigma to signposting to specialist help.

Whilst we discuss specific mental health conditions in brief, we made a deliberate decision to restrict this content substantially. Indeed our delegates participate in an exercise in “attempted diagnosis” which is engineered to highlight just how futile attempts at lay diagnosis are, and how complex the nature of conditions are.

Importantly, we cover the important issues of suicide and giving help rather than advice. We also devote much more time to mental wellbeing, exploring how this can be improved in all populations.

The subject of stress and resilience is also covered in detail, with evidence based tips to build resilience.

If you think that MHFR could be right for you or any of your colleagues, please feel free to get in touch and we can talk further.

Tickets for our MHFR course are priced at £195+VAT.
