MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID CHAMPION

One-day certificated course

Who is it for?
Anyone over 16, especially useful for managers and HR.

What will I learn on the 1 day Mental Health First Aid Champion course?
Mental Health First Aid Champions are able to:

  • Recognise the main signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide initial help
  • Guide the person towards appropriate professional help
  • Develop an understanding of how they can create and maintain a healthier and more productive workforce
  • Be mindful of their own wellbeing

Topics covered:
The course is taught through a mix of group activities, presentation and discussions and each session is built around an MHFA action plan.

This course has been beneficial to me on both a professional and personal level. I feel much more confident in dealing with these situations. Lots of practical tips and resources to use in the workplace.
