Supporting Mental Health

Mental Health First Aid Training – TWO DAYS

In addition to our own prevention-based training, we are approved by MHFA England, to provide Mental Health First Aid Training.

Supporting someone experiencing a mental health issue on a first aid basis.

An internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help and support to someone experiencing mental health issues on a first aid basis. 

This two day course combines presentations and current statistical content with group activities and discussions, all built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan and both qualifies attendees as a Mental Health First Aider and equips them with the following:

An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect mental wellbeing

Enhanced active and non-judgemental listening skills

The resources to guide someone to further support

Knowledge to enable you to identify the triggers and spot the signs of mental health issues

The confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

Increased self-awareness and insight into your own mental health status and challenges

Everyone who completes the course gets a workbook and manual which details all learning content and highlights key points to remember and actions to take so that they can refer back at any time and refresh their knowledge, enabling them to implement their new knowledge and skills immediately.

They also receive a certificate to say that they have attended the Mental Health First Aid course.

Numbers are limited to 16 people per course (minimum 8) so that we can ensure people feel safe and supported while they learn.

To find out how we can support you with raising mental health awareness in your organisation, or to discuss your requirements, get in touch.
