About this Event
Adult MHFA Two Day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider.
Mental Health First Aiders have:

  • An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

What to expect
Do to the venue size we will limit the numbers to 8 so that you can feel safe and supported while you learn. The training room is Covid secure and a full risk assessment has been carried out. We also conduct health questionnaires prior to training.

You will get an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it. When you complete the two days you’ll get a certificate to say you are a Mental Health First Aider. This can take up to 2 weeks to arrive.

Learning takes place across four manageable sessions. Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.

The course held earlier this month had very positive feedback:

Helen one of the participants said, “ Given social distancing measures it felt totally safe, considered and not at risk whilst completing the course. Measures had been put in place prior to attending and reiterated during brilliant venue, everyone was very considerate of each other and exercises had been perfectly adapted.”

Juliet another participant said, “ Becky delivered a very interesting course and was able to, ‘bring to life’ with her wealth of experience. It was good to be able to participate face to face so we could have some good discussions . Becky and Ben made sure the venue was Covid safe which allowed me to focus on MH and not worry about being in a room with others, highly recommend thank you.”

If you are CITB grant eligible you can receive £70 towards the cost of this course.
