Event Description Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course that teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Learning takes place over 2 days through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions. It is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended MHFA England Instructor Training, which is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health. Instructors are trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn. PLEASE NOTE LUNCH IS NOT PROVIDED ON THIS COURSE. Delegates are welcome to bring their own or there are cafes/shops locally to purchase food.
