MHFA 2-day training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

MHFA 2-day training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, traditionally delivered over 2 days, to become an Adult Mental Health First Aider.

This course can be delivered in the classroom, or through blended learning including self-directed study and live webinars.

Suitable for all adults in the workplace aged 16+.  No prior learning in this subject is assumed.

Learning takes place in 4 structured sessions with clear goals and outcomes, through a mix of interactive exercises, presentations and discussion. Each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid Action Plan.

Our trainers create a confidential “safe place” so that any mental health or personal disclosures during your course are heard with respect and signposting support can be offered.

What will I learn?

This course teaches you how to spot the early signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and to provide help on a first aid basis. You will learn a set of skills to respond well in a crisis and to reach out with empathy and support before a crisis happens.

You will learn about:

  • How and why we use a Mental Health First Aid Action Plan.
  • The impact of stigma and discrimination around mental health issues.
  • An introduction to the most common mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, psychosis, eating disorders and self-harm
  • Methods of recovery and how to signpost someone to the right help.
  • Suicide and what steps we can take to help prevent it.

Who is it for?

This course is ideal for HR professionals, line managers/ supervisors and members of staff with the desire and skills to have supportive conversations with their colleagues

It is suitable for all industries and multi-sector practitioners (including construction*, engineering, tech, manufacturing, utilities and power networks, transport and logistics, health, housing, social care, education, criminal justice, call centre operators, private, voluntary and public sector workers and community members).  Also suitable for young people aged 16+, apprentices and graduate leadership trainees.
