Mental Health First Aid

 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training courses teach people to spot the symptoms of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. Just like physical first aid, participants are taught to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

 

Mental health related absences cost UK employers an estimated £34 billion per year

By skilling your organisation in MHFA you can:

  • Give your people the tools to keep themselves and their colleagues healthy

  • Encourage them to access support when it’s needed, for a faster recovery

  • Empower people with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive in work

  • Stop preventable health issues arising by building a supportive culture around mental health

  • Embed positive, long term cultural change across your organisation 

 

Training can be delivered online or onsite. I offer a variety of courses from mental health awareness to Mental Health First Aider:

  • Mental Health First Aid

  • Workplace Mental Health Champion

  • Higher Education Mental Health Champion

  • Mental Health Awareness

  • Mental Health Refresher

 

All MHFA courses offered are written and certified by MHFA England.

 

Research and evaluation shows that MHFA courses make a lasting difference in people’s knowledge and confidence around mental health. They are written by experts, grounded in research, and tested by people with lived experience of mental ill health.
