Mental Health First Aid for your business

Shirley Parsons are partnering with beneFIT Health & Wellbeing to offer our candidates & clients the MHFA course.

"The course was informative & really hit home. This has changed my outlook on mental health and I feel proud to have the knowledge to hopefully help someone who needs it in the future. The two days went quickly!"

Becoming a Mental Health First Aider doesn’t make you a therapist, it teaches you the skills and gives you the confidence to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis situation, where your actions may prevent a crisis from happening

As a part of an organisation’s overall mental health strategy, Mental Health First Aid training helps to raise awareness of mental ill health in the workplace, reduce stigma and discrimination and give people access to someone to talk to at work.  In the same way, people learn physical first aid, mental health first aid gives attendees the confidence and skills to offer support to others living with a mental illness.

The 2 Day Adult MHFA Course:

• Educates in recognising the warning signs and symptoms of someone struggling with a mental health issue

• Teaches the skills to enable someone to have the confidence to approach and support someone in distress

• Develops the ability to listen without judgement, show empathy and acceptance

• Understand resources available to someone struggling with mental health issues to ensure they are signposted to the most relevant support available to them

• Understanding of your own self-care, the benefits of positive wellbeing and tackling stigma

What is included?

• Everyone who attends the course will receive a comprehensive manual to keep and refer to when needed

• Each participant receives an individual course workbook to complete during the course

• On completion of the course, each person will receive a certificate from MHFA

Those who have attended previous courses gave the following feedback:
