Event Description Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) 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.

MHFA 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.

Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn. 
Event Outcomes A practical skills and awareness course designed to give you:

- A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people's wellbeing, including your own

- Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

- Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

- Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

- Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support
