MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID

We offer Mental First Aid training through Mental Health First Aid (England)

ABOUT OUR TRAINING

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally 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.

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.

We can also offer a range of qualifications through QNUK.

OUR COURSES

We can offer:

  • MHFA England 2 day Mental First Aid Course

  • QNUK L1 Award in Mental Health Awareness (RQF)

  • QNUK L2 Award in Mental Health at Work (RQF)

  • QNUK L3 Award in Mental Health at Work (RQF) 

 

We will be shortly offering

  • MHFA half day Mental Health Aware Course

  • MHFA one day Mental Health Champions Course

ABOUT THE COURSES

These are highly interactive courses, which include group activities, presentations, and discussions which will lead you through practical steps that can help someone who needs mental health first aid

 

For example on the two day course you will develop:

  • An understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing, including your own − Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support

Research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course:

  • Raises awareness and mental health literacy

  • Reduces stigma around mental ill health

  • Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues

  • Promotes early intervention which enables recovery
