Mental Health First Aid

 

1 in 4 adults in the UK will experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year.

 

MHFA aims to:

  • preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others.
  • provide help to prevent mental health problems developing into a more serious state
  • promote recovery of good mental health
  • provide comfort to a person experiencing a mental health problem
  • raise awareness of mental health issues in the community
  • reduce stigma and discrimination

 

The MHFA course will give you the skills and confidence to recognise symptoms, provide initial help, and guide the person towards appropriate professional help.

What will I learn?

Our MHFA Standard course is split up into 4 manageable chunks. These are:

  • What is Mental Health?
  • Depression & Suicide
  • Anxiety and Self-harm
  • Psychosis

In each section you'll learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem
  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
  • Help stop a mental illness from getting worse
  • Help someone recover faster
  • Guide someone towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems

 

 

 

How will I learn?

The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. Our instructors provide a very safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don't feel comfortable joining in certain bits, then don't, we won't make you do something you aren't comfortable with.

 

Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, including suicide, we limit numbers to 12 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some bits particularly difficult.

 

We are running two courses in September. 

Each course runs over two days and you must attend on both days.
