Mental Health First Aid Champion One Day Course

Adult Mental Health Champion Course

"The course helped me to understand what I have done well in the past (when my work colleague experienced mental ill health) but also gave me ideas for how I can improve the way I support people in future"


NEW ONLINE, instructor led, Adult Mental Health Champion Course is now available to book for groups of between 8 and 12 delegates.  If you would like to book one of our fantastic MHFA trainers to run your Adult (or Youth) Mental Health Champion course, please contact us!  This ONLINE course is equivalent to the One Day Adult Mental Health Champion course.

Become an Adult Mental Health Champion in two sessions! (Also available for Youth and Higher Education)

In becoming a MHFA Champion, you will achieve:

  • An understanding of common mental health issues
  • Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health
  • Skills to support positive wellbeing

The Champion course is a practical course designed for Line Managers and has a focus on case studies, action plans and outcomes.  Split into two sessions, you'll come to understand the early warning signs of mental ill health, about depression, anxiety disorders, and other mental health issues (eating disorders, self-harm, psychosis).  Stigma, discrimination and suicide are hot topics, and you'll learn how to approach the person, assess and assist with a crisis. Listening and communicating non-judgmentally are important aspects of this course, which also show you how to encourage the person to get appropriate professional help - and about recovery - all to help build a mentally health workplace. 

The One Day Champion course includes a mix of online presentations, discussions and workshop activities.  At the end, you'll get a MHFA manual to keep, so you can refer to it whenever you need it.
