Mental Health First Aid – HHBA offer

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. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you. 

I’m running an open programme 1900-2130hrs so each session is 2.5hrs on Monday evenings 26th April, 3/10/17 May and have 3 spaces available for anyone over the age of 16. The cost of the programme is £300. In addition to the 4 online (via zoom) training sessions, this includes:

  1. Registration with MHFA England
  2. hard copy of supporting materials for use during the course and beyond
  3. access to the online learning platform with guided learning (approx 60min per module)
  4. MHFA certification which is valid for 3 years (please note all elements of the programme are compulsory to pass)

I’m happy to offer HHBA members a 10% discount off the usual price if they sign up by Friday 16th April.
