Mental health first aider training, certified by MHFA England, and in association and partnership with our training providers and partners Balancing Edges.
In the same way as learning physical first aid, this course teaches people how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health and feel confident to guide someone to appropriate support.
Through a blend of instructor-led live sessions and self-learning activities, you will:
- Develop practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
- Gain confidence to reassure and support a person in distress
- Learn how to guide them to further support for recovery
The live learning schedule is four 2 to 2.5 hour sessions over a two week period. Delegates will be sent a link for open learning modules that need to be completed in advance of the four sessions (approx. 90 minutes each)
All delegates will be qualified mental health first aiders following the four online sessions and will receive a certificate from MHFA England.
