Mental Health First Aid Training

Aims:

The aim of this accredited training is to promote good mental health and to create more awareness of mental health issues; to train people (who are not mental health professionals) to spot those affected by mental health problems; and to offer support, help and guidance in getting professional support, resulting in positive effects for everyone affected, including their colleagues, family members, friends and employers.

Benefits:

Accredited Mental Health First Aiders will have gained:

  • A thorough understanding of mental health and the circumstances that can adversely affect mental wellness
  • Constructive skills to help spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues and to take positive action
  • Increased confidence to offer support, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Strengthened interpersonal skills, including how to listen in a non-judgmental way
  • The expertise to help someone to regain their mental well-being by directing them to the right support (that could be via their employer, through the NHS, self-help tools, or a combination)

Description:

A two day interactive workshop either as a stand alone offering or as part of a broader program. Depending on the size and structure of the business, it may be appropriate to have one trained mental health first aider per business/site/division.
