Mental Health First Aid Course

Become a Mental Health First Aider


Adult Mental Health First Aid Training Course


Our two-day Adult Mental Health First Aid course is internationally recognised and is accredited by MHFA England & Public Health England.


After completion, you will be able to recognise the symptoms of mental health issues and support someone on a first aid basis and maybe even help to save lives!


MHFA won't teach you how to be a therapist, but once you’ve completed the two-day course you will be able to say you're a Mental Health First Aider.


Course Outcomes:




  • Recognise the signs & symptoms of mental health issues.




  • Provide early help on a first aid basis.




  • Guide a person towards appropriate professional help by opening up options.



Our quality assured and MHFA England approved MHFA instructor delivers training that has been designed to fit into four manageable chunks. These are:




  • Mental Health First Aid, mental health, and depression.




  • Depression (cont.) and suicidal crisis.




  • Anxiety, personality disorders, eating disorders and self-harm.




  • Psychosis, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.



In each section you’ll learn how to:




  • Spot the early signs of a mental health issue.




  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health issue.




  • Provide help on a first aid basis.




  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others.




  • Help stop a mental health issue from getting worse.




  • Help someone recover faster.




  • Guide someone towards the right support.




  • Reduce the stigma of mental health issues.




  • Be mindful of your own wellbeing.



 


Format of the Course:


The Adult MHFA course takes place over two full days and the sessions are a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities. We provide a safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. As an indication, the two days are structured as detailed in the table below.


Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some parts particularly difficult.


Everyone who attends the course receives a copy of the MHFA materials, which are excellent support resources. When you have completed the course, you will receive a certificate confirming that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider.


Eligibility of Participants:


The course is for everyone aged 16 and upwards and you don’t need any qualifications or experience in mental health to take part.


Booking Instructions:


You can book your place here through Eventbrite or you can contact us direct via e-mail at anthony@anthonytaylorltd.com
