Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a nationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. This course is suitable for anyone who would like to be able to better support their service users, colleagues, friends or family.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. On completion you will received:-
· A certificate of attendance to say you are a Mental Health First Aider
· A manual to refer to whenever you need it
· A quick reference card for the Mental Health First Aid action plan
No – No requirements – an interest in Mental Health.
It is essential that you ensure that you can attend for the whole of both days, in order to successfully complete the programme and receive your certificate.
The course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended the Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.
