Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course that teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.
Using the instructor-led live sessions, you will:
- Develop practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
- Gain confidence to reassure and support a person in distress
- Learn how to guide them to further support for recovery
Completing this MHFA course will help you to develop the skills to support a friend, family member or co-worker.
As a qualified Mental Health First Aider you will be able to:
- Understand the important factors that affect mental ill health
- Identify the signs and symptoms for a range of mental health conditions
- Provide Mental Health First Aid to someone experiencing a mental health issue or crisis
- Listen non-judgmentally and hold supportive conversations using the Mental Health First Aid action plan
- Signpost people to professional help. You’ll recognise that your role as a Mental Health First Aider does not replace the need for ongoing support
