Become a Mental Health First Aider
Our three day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider.
Mental Health First Aiders have:
- An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
- 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 further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix
We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.
Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.
Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the Mental Health First Aiders manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course, you will receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider
Thank you ever so much for running such a fantastic course last week, I will never forget it. Amazing!
