What Will You Learn?

Our Adult MHFA Two Day courses are backed by MHFA England and qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider. Mental Health First Aiders gain;

  • 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

The course content combined with the various facilitated discussions can be somewhat challenging for some at times, so please ensure those attending have a good sense of Wellbeing.
