Module : Mental Health First Aid

Course Overview

Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised, certified, 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 enable you to confidently listen, reassure and respond even in a crisis.

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can impact wellbeing
  • Spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidently step in, reassure and support someone in distress
  • Understand how to maintain their personal wellbeing
  • Use enhanced interpersonal skills including non-judgmental listening
  • Help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support, including self-help resources, employer resources and/or the NHS
  • Promote a supportive, open and positive culture around mental health
  • 2 day course
  • Interactive - group activities, presentations, discussion
  • A workbook, including a helpful toolkit to support attendees own mental health
  • A manual for future reference
  • Participants will be qualified as a Mental First Aider through Mental Health First Aid England
  • Up to 16 participants

“I wanted to say a big thank you for the training you ran for us last Friday. The feedback has been universally positive, and it was certainly one of the best training sessions I’ve ever attended.. I think it gave many people some tools to be much more confident in interacting, which was exactly the aim!”

- Hannah Purves Claims Director, Markel International

“The short focussed presentation of the critical information, supported by electronic class notes, was excellent as it allowed maximal learning in a short, but intense, session. This is definitely the way forward for management training, as far as I am concerned.”
