Mental Health First Aid

 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

Accredited by MHFA England, the course is suitable for everyone aged 16 and over and is delivered online. Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor, who has attended the Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported, while they learn.

Training is particularly relevant for people with line management responsibility in an organisation. Mental health training enables organisations to create a support network, with first aiders acting as first point of contact, offering reassurance to anyone experiencing mental health issues and steering them to professional support services.

  • They will develop enhanced interpersonal skills, such as non-judgemental listening.
  • How to assist with mental health recovery, by guiding anyone in distress to appropriate support

The aim of the course is not to replace professional diagnosis and care, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. It is invaluable on both a personal and professional level.

None of us can predict when or where mental illness will strike, but we can prepare ourselves for every eventuality. The course will also provide you with the tools and strategies to look after your own mental health and wellbeing.
