The Adult Mental Health First Aid two day course enables attendees to qualify as a mental health first aider. They will receive a certificate to prove their qualification and will receive an MHFA manual to refer to both during and after the course.
Mental health first aiders play a very important role in assisting others with mental health issues or who are experiencing the onset of a mental health problem. As a result, they need to have a strong understanding of mental health, know how to spot triggers of illness and be able to approach the situation with confidence. They also need to be able to support the person experiencing mental health problems by developing their listening skills, not showing judgement and helping the person to find further support in order to recover.
