Code: ESC/21/186 Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace - delivered remotely via MS Teams

This course is for ESCC employees to train as Mental Health First Aiders to support their colleagues in the workplace. Please ensure you read the attached ‘MHFA supporting guidance and commitments’ document and the information below carefully as this contains full information about the course and the MHFA scheme.

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.

This is a blended learning approach and requires you to complete some pre-course work. A link to the online learning will be sent to you by the trainer nearer the time. The work must be completed in order to become a qualified and accredited Mental Health First Aider.

What managers are agreeing to when approving their staff member’s attendance on this course:

  • To releasing your staff member for the two day training course, plus any post support sessions (approx. 2 sessions lasting a maximum of 3 hours each).
  • To releasing your staff member for related meetings (approximately 1 or 2 per year).
  • Allowing time to support colleagues when needed (often at short notice).


What you are committing to:

  • Undertaking the accredited training and any additional training (where required) to acquire and maintain your MHFA certificate.
  • Becoming part of the pool of accredited MHFAers and providing mental health first aid within your workplace as needed, at your level of competence and training.
  • Being able to be called away from your normal duties at short notice if required.
  • Acting as a Mental Health Champion and partaking in ad-hoc wellbeing events (when required and dependent on needs of the service).
  • Partaking in post training support as required/directed.
