What is Mental Health First Aid?
  • Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

  • Mental Health First Aid won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

Mental Health Awareness:

  • An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma

  • A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues

  • An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing

  • Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue

What to expect when you attend the four hour course:

Learning takes place during the four hour course, through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.

It really is a great fast paced course, at the appropriate pace you will learn how to 'Take 10 Together' and start a conversation.

We limit numbers to 25 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. 

Everyone who completes the course receives:
  • An MHFA manual to refer to whenever they need it

  • A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support their own mental health

  • A certificate of attendance to say they are Mental Health Aware

 

Adult Mental Health Awareness courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards.
