I am a qualified Mental Health First Aid Instructor which enables me to deliver the following courses: 2 day Mental Health First Aider Adult & Youth (Certified course) 1 day Mental Health Champion 1/2 day Mental Health Awareness 1/2 day Mental Health Refresher We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Ill mental health can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life. Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don't tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. This means that people may not know how to support a friend, family member or colleague experiencing a mental health issue, or where to go for support with their own mental health. NB. All our training/booking is covered by the Terms and Conditions of the Charity please ask for more details Contact us here to register your interest.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a 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 well-being and tackle stigma in the world around you.
Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training
A record number of youths are struggling with a range of mental health problems, and the trend is that this will continue to rise. 1 in 10 youths can experience a mental health issue, and suicide is a leading cause of death for kids aged as young as 5.
The reasons are numerous and some are unprecedented. Pressure to do well academically, pressure to fit in socially, bullying is now present not only on a physical but virtual level, there is not enough support by mental health professionals...
If you would be like to be able to help the youths of today, we recommend following the Youth MHFA course delivered by our very own Liz Rotherham.
If you would like to know more about Youth MHFA training, please do not hesitate to contact us.
There are also some free resources available in the meantime on the MHFA website.
