Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. Adult MHFA courses can be attended by people aged 16 upwards and are relevant for the general population.
Delegates on an Adult MHFA course are taught a set of skills which enables them to support someone experiencing mental health issues. Each and every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor, who has attended the 7 day instructor training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.
This two day course is designed for delegates across all levels of an organisation, but primarily for line managers or anyone who has the responsibility of managing a team.
This course will:
- Teach practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support
- Give a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on and relate to people's mental health
