Mental Health First Aid

1 Day Course

The MHFA one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies you as an Adult MHFA Champion.

 

Introduction

This one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies delegates as MHFA Champions.  The session is built around a Mental Health First Aid Action plan.

MHFA Champions

  • Have an understanding of common mental health issues
  • Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health
  • Skills to support positive wellbeing

What to expect

Numbers are limited to 16 people per course so that the trainer can keep delegates safe and supported while they learn.

The day includes a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.

Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it, and a badge and certificate to say they are an MHFA Champion.
