A two day Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) open course in central Manchester - Oldham Street, M4 1LE - on the 23-24th January 2019. Both days run from 0900-1700 and drinks and refreshments are provided.
We ensure a high quality learning experience, by using two teaching/training qualified and supportive tutors, with a comprehensive introduction to mental health issues and how to support someone in a mental health crisis.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.
You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
