Mental Health First Aid


                                                                                 

Our most popular and the most effective mental health awareness course.

"This training has revolutionized my thinking on mental health. I will absolutely be applying it not only to my immediate team but the wider company (and my personal life). Thank you!"

An internationally recognised 2-day course which, similar to physical First Aid, provides the non-expert with comprehensive knowledge of the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and the confidence to intervene, both in crisis situations and in general.

MHFA is valuable in providing information on a range of mental health problems, along with reducing stigma and encouraging early intervention.

MHFA does not intend to train people to become therapists, but to provide the non-expert with knowledge of the first signs and symptoms of a range of mental health problems, and the confidence to intervene when a problem is observed – in the same way that they might in physical First Aid programmes.

MHFA is an internationally recognised course, which aims to have Mental Health First Aid knowledge embedded into organisations.

MHFA is a 2-day course ideal for HR practitioners, managers, employees, volunteers or anyone with an interest in mental wellbeing. 

All delegates will receive the MHFA Manual and Workbook included in the price. Hard copies of the well received Line Manager's Resource can be included at £10.00pp extra or you can download a copy for free here.

The aims of MHFA are:

  • To pre-empt work related stress, anxiety and depression
  • To prevent mental health problems becoming more serious
  • To promote recovery
  • To provide support to an employee experiencing mental health problems
  • To raise awareness of mental health problems in the community and in the workplace
  • To reduce stigma and discrimination
  • To preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others
