Event description

Description

Poor mental health in the workplace costs UK businesses £billions every year. Mental Health First Aid training can help to reduce the cost. Training career partners, line managers and peer supporters can have a positive impact on sickness absence and staff engagement.

Mental Health First Aid Standard Adult 2-Day (MHFA Adult) is an internationally recognised course which has been updated in October 2016.

MHFA won't teach you how to be a therapist, but you'll be able to say you're a Mental Health First Aider. Check out our 'What will you learn?' section on this page for more details.

DMWS employ a number of MHFA instructors, who are approved by MHFA England. They deliver a 2-day Mental Health First Aid course for individuals or groups.


What will you learn?

Our MHFA Adult course is split up into 4 manageable chunks. These are:

  • What is mental health?
  • Suicide
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Psychosis

In each section you'll learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem
  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
  • Help stop a mental illness from getting worse
  • Help someone recover faster
  • Guide someone towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems

How will you learn?

The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. Our instructors provide a very safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don't feel comfortable joining in certain bits, then don't, we won't make you do something you aren't comfortable with.

Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, including suicide, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some parts particularly difficult.

You'll receive a MHFA Adult manual full of useful resources that you can take away with you at the end of the course and also an attendance certificate from MHFA England to say you are now a Adult Mental Health First Aider.

Who can attend the course?

The course is simply for everyone!

All that we ask is for you to be above the age of 16. This is due to some of the content being quite sensitive and can be upsetting to some. We want to ensure that we create a safe and suitable learning environment for all our attendees.
