We are proud to offer you a full range of the internationally recognised and nationally accredited training courses that provide practical skills in mental health: Mental Health First Aid (MHFA).
Our training offer includes the following courses in adults mental health:
1. MHFA – Learn about adult mental health
All of the MHFA course outcomes are beneficial to both individuals and employers alike: in essence, MHFA is reducing stigma around mental health and increasing the level of mental health literacy.
Just like the traditional first aid courses it applies a similar approach by introducing a unique memory tool for conducting mental health first aid.
The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) has accredited both the Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid instructor training programmes. MHFA England also enjoys the patronage of Lord Kamlesh Patel.
The MHFA course will teach you, over two days, how to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, provide help on a first aid basis and effectively signpost towards support services.
By enrolling on a Mental Health First Aid course, you will be able to spot the early signs of a mental health problem and feel confident in helping someone experiencing a problem.
As a Mental Health First Aider you can prevent someone from hurting themselves, or others, and help someone recover faster by making sure they receive appropriate professional support.
2. MHFA Lite – A short introductory course in adult mental health
