Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised two day accredited training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. There are four sessions to this course, 2 on each of 2 days, and allowing ample time for coffee/comfort breaks.
MHFA training 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. The MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, who are trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone whilst keeping yourself safe.
