Become a Mental Health First Aid Champion

Become a Mental Health First Aid Champion

Posted by Amanda Furness


We have recently introduced the one-day Workplace Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course from MHFA England.  Attendance on this course qualifies participants as Adult MHFA Champions who will be able to offer:

  • an understanding of common mental health issues
  • knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
  • the ability to spot signs of mental ill health
  • skills to support positive wellbeing

The course is built around a mental health first aid action plan and the day consists of a mixed approach including discussions, presentations and group activities.

All those who complete the course receive a manual and a certificate confirming they are a Mental Health First Aid Champion.

As the following comments illustrate, the structure, content and delivery of this valuable course have all been well received by those who have completed the training so far:

Excellent! Most effective course I’ve ever attended.
Great progression from the mental health awareness course. Dawn’s delivery style is fantastic, engaging and just at the right level. Really, really enjoyed the day!
I found the course very helpful, and has provided me with confidence to approach someone at work and in my personal life.

You can find full details about this course and how to become a Mental Health First Aid Champion in the Mental Health Awareness section of our website.
