Event description

Description

The National Education Union has great pleasure in inviting you to our next fully accredited Mental Health First Aid two-day residential training course, which is taking place on Friday 18th May & Saturday 19th May 2018 at The Holiday Inn , Centre Island, Lower Mersey Street, Ellesmere Port, CH65 2AL.

Delivered in association with North West TUC and Mental Health England, our MHFA course has been designed especially with the acute needs of education professionals in mind. The two-day training will cover key topics around mental health and wellbeing, and will support individuals and schools to apply a whole school approach to mental and emotional health.

This course is free for all NEU members and includes all training materials, accommodation, meals and use of the hotel’s leisure facilities (your school will need to meet the costs of supply cover – seek permission from your school before signing up).

Places are limited.

The course is divided into four sessions:

Friday

Session 1

Mental Health First Aid, mental health and depression

Session 2

Depression (continued) and suicidal crisis

Saturday

Session 3

Anxiety, personality disorders, eating disorders and self-harm

Session 4

Psychosis, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder

It is hoped that these sessions will give a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on, and relate to, people’s mental health. As well as covering the importance of whole school preventative policies and procedures, delegates will learn practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support.

Every course participant will receive a copy of the Mental Health First Aid England manual and workbook, both of which are excellent resources. On completion of the course, participants will also receive a certificate to confirm that they are a trained Mental Health First Aider.

We have chosen The Holiday Inn to help promote your mental wellbeing whilst on the course. The leisure facilities available at the hotel include a swimming pool, sauna and fitness room, all of which are available for you to use during your free time over the two day course.
