I am looking to Run a Mental Health First Aid Course. The normal cost for this course is £200 per head, the Big Comunitea is sponsoring 10 free places, we are aiming this at people that have a real interest in making a difference to the lives of vulnerable people that live in our area.

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. And will gain a recognised Qualification, and gain CPD points.

I am looking to Run the 4 modules over 4 evenings during April.

If you are, or know anybody that may be interested please message us.
