Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.
You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
This 2 day Adult MHFA will be held in a beautiful setting over looking the marina in Bradford On Avon, over to consecutive days during the summer holidays, when I hope some may have more flexibility to commit the time for this brilliant course. Anyone aged 16 or over is very welcome.
Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day and the venues offers a full lunch menu, or you’re welcome to bring your own.
The course costs £300 per person. An Early Bird discount of 20% is available for any courses booked before June 28th. Discounts also available to individuals who are self funding, Charities and Schools, please get in touch for further information. Tracy@mhfaFirst.co.uk. 07540 938936
