***** Mental Health First Aid | Tuesday, 22. September 2020

Our two day ***** MHFA course is an internationally recognised course.

About this Event

Our two day ***** MHFA course is an internationally recognised course. After taking it, you will be able to:

• Recognise the symptoms of mental health issues

• Provide initial help

• Guide a person towards appropriate professional help

MHFA won't teach you how to be a therapist, but once you’ve completed the two day course you will be able to say you're a Mental Health First Aider.

The sessions will be a mix of presentations, discussions and group work activities. Our instructors provide a safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don’t feel comfortable joining in certain parts, then there is no pressure to.

Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the MHFA manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course you will receive a certificate from MHFA to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider.
