Certified by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, we currently offer a selection of MHFA courses designed to:

  • Learn about mental health and how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue;
  • Help managers to develop their skills and knowledge to have effective mental health conversations with their teams.

Our courses can be delivered both online or on-site at your workplace.

 

Online Mental Health Aware (1/2 day)

The 4-hour course is designed to help delegates to understand what mental health is, how to challenge stigma and recognise common mental health issues.

Delegates will have an introduction into looking after their own mental health as well as gain confidence to support others who may be experiencing mental health issues.

This course covers:

·       What mental health is and how to challenge stigma

·       A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues

·       An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing

·       Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

Open workshops cost £70 plus VAT per delegate.

Costs for in-house training for your organisation can be requested by contacting us via: info@leading-well.uk

 

Online Adult Mental Health First Aid

In response to the ongoing social distancing rules, MHFA England has redeveloped their 2-day certificated workshop to an online programme, so essentially, the course is the same training you would receive in a training room.

 

The course is a blend of live training sessions (4 in total; each between 2 and 2.5 hours) and self-learning activities. The workshops are structured around:

·       Session 1: Understanding Mental Health First Aid and tackling stigma and discrimination

·       Session 2: First Aid for suicidal crisis and depression;

·       Session 3: Anxiety, eating disorders and self-harm;

·       Session 4: Psychosis, recovery and Mental Health First Aid planning.

 

The programme has been designed to help delegates spot the triggers and signs of mental health conditions as well as gain confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress. Self-directed learning activities are provided to delegates, which can be completed at an individual’s own pace prior to each online live session.

 

On successful completion of the course delegates will receive a certificate and will be an approved Mental Health First Aider.

 

Open workshops cost £240 plus VAT per delegate.

Costs for in-house training for your organisation can be requested by contacting us via: info@leading-well.uk.

 

Online Adult MHFA Refresher

MHFA England recommends that Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions attend a refresher course every three years. Just like physical first aid, updating skills and knowledge allows people to perform this vital role confidently and safely.

The 4-hour course is designed to renew skills, update knowledge as well as provide an opportunity to practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Please note that the MHFA Refresher is only for people who have completed an Adult MHFA Two Day or One Day, or Armed Forces MHFA Two Day course.

 

Open workshops cost £70 plus VAT per delegate.

Costs for in-house training for your organisation can be requested by contacting us via: info@leading-well.uk.
