Course description

Mental Health First Aid: 2-Day Training for Mental Health First Aiders

An individual can have a serious mental ill health condition but – with the right support and a positive workplace culture – can still be thriving at work. A Mental Health First Aider is trained to spot signs and symptoms of developing mental ill health, assess risks, offer non-judgemental support and direct people towards appropriate professional support or self-help strategies.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training has been developed in partnership with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England and encourages people to talk freely about mental health, reducing stigma and creating a more positive work culture.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Just as you’d have ‘standard’ first aiders in place to safeguard against physical injuries and illness, we recommend that all organisations have trained Mental Health First Aiders available to all employees to safeguard employee wellbeing. This 2-day training course is the more comprehensive of our three Mental Health First Aid courses. It’s suitable for anyone in your workplace who wishes to take on the role as part of your employee wellbeing policy.

*Please be aware that this course focuses on employees in the workplace and covers subjects that some people may find distressing, including suicide and self-harm. If a delegate feels overwhelmed they can leave the course at any time.

Expenses

This course runs in training centres across England and prices vary depending on the venue chosen.

St John Ambulance has training venues right across England with courses running regularly. Visit our website or contact us to find out where your most convenient course is. If you have a group of employees that require training, we can come to you and train on your premises (or a suitable venue).
