Adult Mental Health First Aid 1/2 Day Course
Developed by MHFA England, this half day course is an
introductory four-hour session to raise awareness of mental health.
Delegates will gain an understanding of what mental health is and
how to challenge stigma. The course gives delegates a basic
knowledge of common mental health issues and teaches them how to
look after their own mental health and wellbeing.
Who should attend?
This course is suitable for those looking to understand and
improve their knowledge and confidence about mental health and to
learn the skills to support their own and others’ positive
wellbeing in the workplace.
**Please be aware that this course focuses on employees
in the workplace and covers subjects that some people may find
distressing, including suicide and self-harm. If a delegate feels
overwhelmed they can leave the course at any time.
However, if you feel in advance that this subject may be too
distressing for the delegate please do not book them on without
first asking them whether they would feel comfortable attending. If
the delegate is unsure whether MHFA is right for them, please
encourage them to contact us to discuss
their concerns. For support with your mental health, please contact
Samaritans on 116 123, or NHS 111.**
