Mental Health First Aid
Join me for a 1 day MHFA England Champion course. Delivered from lived experience of mental ill health and proof that recovery is possible
What is Mental Health First Aid? Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA 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. Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn. Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions.
This one day Champion course raises awareness and develops skills which will teach you to: − Recognise the main signs and symptoms of common mental health issues − Provide initial support − Guide a person towards appropriate professional help − Be mindful of your own wellbeing − Develop an understanding of how you can create and maintain a healthier workforce or community.
Course is held in the historic town of Warwick. Refreshments are available at the venue.
