Who Should Attend? This course is suitable for those who want to gain the necessary skills to have a non-judgmental conversation, recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues and effectively guide a person towards the right support. Developed by MHFA England, this two-day course aims to qualify Participants as mental health first aiders. Participants will be provided with a deep understanding of what mental health is and what factors can affect wellbeing. The course teaches Participants practical skills to spot the signs of mental illness and gives them the confidence to step in and support a person who needs assistance.
There is no formal assessment for this course but Participants must complete all sections of the course. On completion of the course, Participants will receive a Mental Health First Aider certificate.
