Mental Health First Aid is First Aid - but not for physical health. This is a course to equip you with the skills to help if you come across anyone in emotional or mental distress. You are more likely to come across someone needing mental health first aid than you are having a heart attack - and yet workplaces and community groups routinely only have physical first aid available. This needs to change and we are part of that change - delivering MHFA training for Adults.
Why do the training? - People come on the courses for a variety of reasons - they work with vulnerable groups who may be more likely to exhibit emotional or mental distress. Or they may be a line manger who wants to do the best for his staff by finding out how to support someone at work who may become distressed. Or their work is customer facing and they need the skills in case they are required - just as a physical first aider is prepared to intervene if and when needed.
As well as the "gold standard" 2-day first aider course, we also provide the following
Some interesting research by MHFA England found that 80% of delegates have managed their own mental health better since attending the training - this is a hugely beneficial "side effect".
