Mental Health First Aid

This two day course is designed to give an understanding of how to look after wellbeing & challenge stigma. It teaches people how to spot the signs & symptoms of mental ill health & provide help on a first aid basis.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, it won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

 Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
 Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support

When you complete your course you will get a certificate of attendance & a MHFA booklet to keep.
