Mental Health First Aider Training
A key part of our mental health and wellbeing offering is Mental Health First Aider training.
This 2-day course qualifies candidates to be their workplace’s Mental Health First Aider.
It gives delegates the skills to have a non-judgmental conversation, recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues and effectively guide a person towards the right mental health support.
However you need your training delivered, speak to #oneoftheteam who will be able to find a solution perfectly tailored to your requirements.
Delegates will gain an in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing, as well as practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental illness, and the confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress.
All delegates receive a mental health first aid manual and workbook to support their learning.
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 an attendee feels overwhelmed they can leave the course at any time.
We feel it's essential to have at least one Mental Health First Aider in every business (we have five ourselves!). As well as training, we have lots of free downloadable resources on our website.
