Event description

Description

The Mental Health First Aid Course teaches you how to recognise the signs and symptoms of different mental health illnesses and mental health crises. Learn how to offer initial help and guide a person toward appropriate treatements and other support.

Mental illnesses covered in the course include depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance misuse. Mental health crises situations covered include suicidal thoughts and behaviours, non-suicidal self-injury, panic attacks, traumatic events, the effects of drug and alcohol misuse and agressive behaviours.

Why attend the course?
Mental health probems are common, and it is highly likely that we will all at some time have close contact with someone who has or is developing a mental health illness or crisis.

The Mental Health First Aid Course is evidence-based and courses have been widely evaluated in research trials. The course improves knowledge, reduces stigmatising attitudes, increases supportive actions towards people with mental health problems and also improves the mental health of participants.

Course particpants receive a copy of the Standard Mental Health First Aid Manual, MHFA Wallet Card and Certificate of Completion (must attend both days of training). Upon completion, particpants are eligible to complete an online Accreditation Assessment in order to receive a Mental Health First Aider Certificate of Accreditation valid for three years.

Most professionals can claim attendance at a Mental Health First Aid Course for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with their industry body.

Course Details
9am to 5pm Saturday 5th and Saturday 12 May (must attend both days of training)
