In the UK, one in four people are experiencing a mental health problem at any one time, including those in the workplace.
The 12 hour AMHFA (Wales) course teaches adults how to provide Mental Health First Aid to friends, families and co-workers.
Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem, or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
The course is based on international MHFA Guidelines. Curriculum content is evidence-based, with the input of mental health professionals, researchers, and consumer advocates.
As a participant, you will gain improved knowledge of mental illnesses and their interventions, knowledge of appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in helping individuals experiencing a mental health problem.
* Please note that due to the sensitive topics discussed within the training it is recommended that participants have an appropriate level of well-being before attending.
Course can be delivered at customer's site, on request.
There are no formal entry requirements, but participants should be aged 18+.
Whilst sharing experiences can benefit the training experience, participants must be aware that Mental Health First Aid is designed to help participants support others and is not intended as a therapy session for the participants.
