Why MHFA Training Courses
“Probably the best course I’ve been on. I’ve attended first aid, health and safety etc., before, but this has a great balance between practical and verbal learning.” – Paul Jones.
The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England training courses are designed to teach individuals how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and provide first aid support. These courses are suitable for everyone aged 16 and above and are delivered by accredited Instructor Members who have undergone extensive training to ensure a safe and supportive learning environment.
There are four different MHFA England training courses available:
- Mental Health First Aid (MHFAider) – This two-day course teaches participants how to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, and provide first aid support. Participants will learn how to listen, reassure, and respond in a crisis and how to signpost individuals to appropriate professional help.
- MHFA Refresher Half Day – This half-day course is designed for individuals who have already completed the Mental Health First Aid (MHFAider) course and want to refresh their knowledge and skills.
- MHFA Champion One Day – This one-day course teaches participants how to promote mental health in the workplace and support their colleagues. Participants will learn how to create a positive culture, encourage open conversations about mental health, and provide first-aid support to colleagues experiencing mental health problems.
- MHFA Aware Half Day – This is a half-day course that provides an introduction to mental health and teaches participants how to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems. It is suitable for individuals who want to learn more about mental health and how to support themselves and others.
There are several reasons why people book MHFA England training courses. One of the main reasons is to improve their confidence. Participating in an MHFA England training course can help individuals improve their confidence in supporting others with mental health problems. The courses teach participants how to recognise and respond to the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and provide practical tools and techniques to support those in need. This can help individuals feel more confident in their ability to support others, which can lead to a more positive and supportive work environment.
Positive Culture and Working Environment
Another reason why people book MHFA England training courses is to create a positive working culture and environment. Training employees in mental health first aid can inspire people to talk more openly about mental health problems, encouraging early detection and enabling recovery. This can help to decrease stigma and create a more supportive and understanding workplace.
