Mental Health First Aid | Accredited Training | £65*

Thursday 24th and Friday 25th January 2019

 

 

This is a comprehensive awareness and skills course, which includes a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities. The course will take place at Community House, 311 Fore St. N9 0PZ

 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. In the same way as learning physical first aid, MHFA teaches people how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health and feel confident to guide someone to appropriate support. Embedding MHFA training within any organisation or community also encourages people to talk more freely about mental health, reducing stigma and creating a more positive culture.

Internal support is very important to embed Mental Health First Aiders into an organisation successfully.
