Mental Health First Aid 

What is mental health?   

Mental health is part of our overall health. It's about: 
How we feel, think, and behave 
How we cope with the ups and downs of everyday life 
How we feel about ourselves and our life 
How we see ourselves and our future 
How stress affects us 
How we deal with negative events 
Our self-esteem and confidence 

Mental Health First Aid two-day course   

Our two-day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider. 
Mental Health First Aiders have: 
An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing 
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 further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix 
We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. 
Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan. 
Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it, and a certificate to say they are a Mental Health First Aider.
