Event description
Full two day course, qualifying participants to be Certified Mental Health First Aiders.

                                              Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th September 2020


Our two day ***** MHFA course is an internationally recognised course. After taking it, you will be able to:

Recognise the symptoms of mental health issues
Provide initial help
Guide a person towards appropriate professional help

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. 
The training course that has been designed to fit into four manageable chunks. These are:

Mental Health First Aid, mental health, and depression

Show more
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.

The course is for everyone aged 16 and upwards and you don’t need any qualifications or experience in mental health to take part.
The ***** MHFA course takes place over 2 full days ( in this case, a Wednesday and Thursday) at a cost of just £250 per person, thanks to support from the Education4Health Benevolent Fund. (This represents a significant saving on the MHFA recommended fee for this programme of £300 per attendee).
The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. Jane will provide a very safe learning environment and is trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don't feel comfortable joining in certain parts, then don't, we won't ask you to do something you aren't comfortable with.
Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, including *******, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and Jane can help if people find some topics particularly difficult.
