Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health.

MHFA England training won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Adult MHFA England courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards.

Every MHFA England course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor Member who has attended Mental Health First Aid England’s Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Pulic Health and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn 

Half Day – Mental Health Aware 

An introductory and interactive instructor-led live session, you will learn:
– What mental health is and how to challenge stigma
– An introduction to some common mental health issues
– Confidence to support someone who may be experiencing mental ill health
– Ways to look after your own mental health and support wellbeing

When you complete your course you will get a certificate of attendance and a manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it.   

Research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA England course: 
– Raises awareness and mental health literacy 
– Reduces stigma around mental ill health 
– Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues 
– Promotes early intervention which enables recovery    

In order for us to send the training manual to you we will contact you by email after you have registered to attend the course to obtain your postal address.  Manuals will be posted by 6th July at the latest to ensure they reach you in time.  Alternatively or if after 6th July these can be collected from Shropshire Chamber Office in Telford.  There will be a £25.00 charge for the training manual.  The training will be delivered virtually via Zoom and there will be regular breaks within the session
