Become a Mental Health First Aider – 2 day accredited programme
Individuals will be trained as certified Mental Health First Aiders for their organisation with Evoke Workplace Wellbeing.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.
You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
The support in particular lends itself to managing mental health in the workplace, but also needs to be implemented effectively. The training will be delivered via a combination of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. We will also highlight potential pitfalls and best practice examples for organisations.
Ø Delegates will also receive practical hard copy information to takeaway in the form of a substantial MHFA manual, workbook and tool kit for managing ones own mental health, and a quick reference card with the MHFA action plan.
Ø Upon completion, each delegate will receive a certificate of attendance to say they are a Mental Health First Aider.
