Mental Health First Aid - 1/2 Day MHFA Awareness Course

Adult half day awareness course

The half day course is an introductory four-hour session to build an understanding of mental health.

The aim of the course is to give you:

  • Understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health illness
  • A basic knowledge of common mental health issues
  • An introduction into looking after and maintaining your own mental health needs and well-being
  • Confidence to support a person in distress or that may be experiencing a mental health issue

Learning is based around a combination of presentations, group discussions and activities. We have a maximum number of 25 people per course so that the instructor can develop and maintain a safe and supported environment while delegates learn.

Each person who completes the course receives:

  • A manual to refer to when needed
  • A workbook which includes a helpful toolkit to support your own mental health
  • A certificate of attendance to say you are Mental Health Aware

4-10% of people in England will experience depression in their lifetime.
