How will becoming a
Mental Health First Aider help?
The course will:
Give a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on and relate to people's mental health
Teach 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
Independent research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course:
Raises awareness and mental health literacy
Reduces stigma around mental ill health and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support
Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues
Encourages people to start a conversation with a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue
Promotes early intervention which enables recovery
MHFA won't teach you how to be a therapist, but you will be able to say you're a Mental Health First Aider.
What will I learn on a two day MHFA course?
Our MHFA instructors deliver training in four manageable chunks, each with a focus on how to apply Mental Health First Aid skills:
Mental Health First Aid, mental health, and depression.
Depression (cont.) and suicidal crisis.
Anxiety, personality disorders, eating disorders and self-harm.
Psychosis, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the MHFA manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course you will also receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained
Mental Health First Aider.
