As an instructor member of Mental Health First Aid England, I am fully certified to deliver online adult mental health first aid training.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe. You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. I’m proud to support Mental Health First Aid England with it aim of training one in ten people in mental health awareness and skills.
This online course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider, giving you:
▸ 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
This is an online course delivered through the MHFA England Online Learning Hub.
Learning takes place through four live training sessions, spread across two days, with self-learning activities in between. See course structure section below for more detail.
Each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.
I limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.
Everyone who completes the course gets:
▸ A certificate of attendance to say you are a Mental Health First Aider
▸ A manual to refer to whenever you need it
▸ A quick reference card for the Mental Health First Aid action plan
▸ A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support your own mental health
