Mental Health First Aid Training
Would you like to become a Mental Health First Aider?
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.
You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
What our lovely delegates said!
The instructors were lovely and welcoming and delivered the course material at a very good pace I felt fully supported throughout despite online training.
Absolutely brilliant, both instructors were fantastic! They made everyone feel at ease and comfortable. It was well paced and there was a great variety of activities.
Really enjoyed the course - I found it well structured and collaborative to support my learning. I feel that I have a much better understanding of mental health issues and how to support someone with their mental health.
