Adult

Mental Health Champion

1 Day Course
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.

MHFA Champions will have:

  • An understanding of common mental health issues

  • Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness

  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health

  • Skills to support positive wellbeing

Who is the one day course great for?

SO Coach believes that this course is great for anyone who

  • Wants to achieve a greater understanding of mental health

  • Has a genuine interest to champion mental health.

  • Works in an organisation who truly believe that we can break the stigma around mental health.

We deliver the course in two sessions
  1. Mental Health First Aid, mental health, depression, anxiety, other mental health issues and early warning signs
