Adult Mental Health First Aid Training course
We are delighted to be able to run our Adult Mental Health First Aid Training course once again after the positive feedback it received when it was run last half-term.
This online course is split into 4 manageable sessions which are built around the Mental Health First Aid action plan. Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. There will also be independent study work between sessions and tutors will be available to support you through these.
At the end of the 4 sessions, you will receive:
- A certificate of attendance to say you are a Mental Health First-Aider
- A manual to refer to whenever you need it
- A quick reference card for the Mental Health First Aid action plan
- A helpful toolkit to support your own mental health
The course will provide an in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect well-being, the practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues and the confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress.
It will also help develop the enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening and build the knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix.
We will then be running this course (4 sessions) in Summer Term Two on the following dates.
Kindly note that all sessions will be held from 9.30am – 12.30pm:
- Session 1: 24th May
- Session 2: 26th May
- Session 3: 8th June
- Session 4: 10th June
