Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses teach individuals how to provide support to friends, family members, co-workers or other adults in your community who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or problem.
To start the year off I am running a Blended Online Mental Health First Aid Community Course on the 18th and 19th January, 2022.
This blended online course is an alternate online delivery pathway for our Standard Mental Health First Aid course (12 hours). The course will be delivered as follows:
- 5-7 hours of self-paced E-Learning, and
- 2 x 2.5hour instructor-led Zoom sessions
Why attend a MHFA course?
With improved knowledge of mental illnesses, treatment options and appropriate first aid strategies – we are more equipped to confidently support individuals with mental illness. Training is also associated with decreased stigma and more help provided to those that need it.
Evidence also tells us that a person is more likely to seek help if it’s suggested by someone that they know and trust. By learning these skills, you can help make a difference to people you care about most.
Mental Health problems and crises covered as part of the course:
Depression and anxiety
Psychosis or psychotic episodes
Substance abuse problems and the severe effects from alcohol or drug use
Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
Spots are limited so you must book ASAP.
