This course is another fantastic course by Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA England). The course is designed and structured to give the candidates an awareness of mental health. The course is only half a day and is a real eye opener for those with limited or no experience with mental health issues.
The course will look at the following subject areas:
- What mental health is and how to challenge stigma
- A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
- An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing
- Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue
This course does not make you a mental health first aider, but it gives you a great insight into the mental health world. If you are thinking of becoming a mental health first aider but are unsure about the course, this 4 hour option is a good way to see if the 1 or 2 day course is for you.
If you are an employer looking at getting your staff trained in the awareness of mental health issues, then this is the course for you. This course can really raise the awareness levels with a company and help support the mental health first aiders who you may already employ or who are going to train up.
Each delegate will receive a workbook, manual and a certificate.
