Mental Health First Aid Two Day Course


                                                   

Our most popular and the most effective mental health awareness course.

"This training has revolutionised my thinking on mental health. I will absolutely be applying it not only to my immediate team but the wider company (and my personal life). Thank you!"

NEWS FLASH:
By mid-June 2020, a NEW ONLINE, instructor led, TWO DAY MHFA course will be ready to present to groups of between 8 and 12 delegates.  If you would like to book one of our fantastic MHFA trainers to run your Mental Health First Aider course, please contact us!

An internationally recognised 2-day course which, similar to physical First Aid, provides the non-expert with comprehensive knowledge of the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and the confidence to intervene, both in crisis situations and in general.

MHFA is valuable in providing information on a range of mental health problems, along with reducing stigma and encouraging early intervention.

MHFA does not intend to train people to become therapists, but to provide the non-expert with knowledge of the first signs and symptoms of a range of mental health problems, and the confidence to intervene when a problem is observed – in the same way that they might in physical First Aid programmes.

MHFA is an internationally recognised course, which aims to have Mental Health First Aid knowledge embedded into organisations.

MHFA is a 2-day course ideal for HR practitioners, managers, employees, volunteers or anyone with an interest in mental well-being. 

All delegates will receive the MHFA Manual, Workbook and attendance certificate included in the price. 

The aims of MHFA are:

  • To preempt work related stress, anxiety and depression
  • To prevent mental health problems becoming more serious
  • To promote recovery
  • To provide support to an employee experiencing mental health problems
  • To raise awareness of mental health problems in the community and in the workplace
  • To reduce stigma and discrimination
  • To preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others

For company based course, the group sizes should be of 8 to 16.  For the MYB Open to Public courses, the same price applies with only one person needing to book (there may be up to around 15 others on your course).  For the NEW ONLINE courses, the groups are for between 8 and 16 delegates.  MHFA England value the course at £300pp.
