Mental Health First Aid Adult 2-Day (MHFA Adult) is an internationally recognised course. MHFA Adult won't teach you how to be a therapist, but you'll be able to say you're a Mental Health First Aider.
Robyn Lewis, our MHFA England certified instructor will run the programme over two consecutive days. The days will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. We offer this as an in-house programme at your premises or alternatively we run open courses held in Central London.
The MHFA Adult course is split up into 4 manageable chunks:
1. What is mental health?
3. Anxiety and depression
In each section you'll learn how to:
• Spot the early signs of a mental health issue
• Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health issue
• Provide help on a first aid basis
• Guide someone towards the right support
• Increase your own and other awareness to reduce the stigma of mental health issues.
The programme can run with 8-16 delegates.
Each delegate will receive a full MHFA England accredited certificate, workbook, manual and handy action card for continuous learning.
Personal confidence on how best to support others with a mental health issue:
• 100% of delegates surveyed agreed their personal confidence had increased after taking the course.
Knowledge and understanding of how best to support others with mental health issue(s):
