Mental Health First Aid

13 Nov – 15 Nov

This three-day, virtual course will qualify you as a Mental Health First Aider and will provide you with an in-depth knowledge to enable you to support your co-workers. The sessions will be very interactive and there will be some pre-course learning and reading (detailed below). The course will give you:

  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing.
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues.
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress.
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening.
  • 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.

This course is delivered online and is made up of individual learning activities and a series of four live instructor-led sessions. Individual learning will be based on a combination of videos, workbook activities and reading. This can be completed at your own pace in advance of each live session. The live sessions are led by an approved MHFA England Instructor and are interactive, involving presentation of slides, video clips, activities, discussion and case studies, which you will explore as a group to embed learning. Please see the timings of the live sessions below:

13th Nov DAY 1 – 9am – 12:20 pm live session 1

14th Nov DAY 2 – 9am – 12:45 pm live session 2

15th Nov DAY 3 – 9am – 12:45 pm live session 3

15th Nov DAY 3 – 2pm – 5pm live session 4

Before the live sessions begin you will need to do some set up online and some pre learning which will take 1 hour.
