Adult Mental Health First Aid

Delivery Method: Face-to-face

Mental Health First Aid is the help given to someone experiencing a mental health problem before specialist help is obtained. MHFA provides a framework for responding to anxiety, self injury, depression, suicide risk and psychosis. You’ll learn how to recognise the signs of mental health problems and develop confidence to respond to people who are distressed; and identify techniques to keep people safe, prevent symptoms worsening, aid recovery and find appropriate support. Participants receive a manual and certificate of attendance from MHFA England.

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Learn skills to recognise the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Develop confidence to step-in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms
