Attention People Leaders!

Is Mental Health First Aid really the course you’re looking for?

Mental Health First Aid is a great course. It’s designed to teach anyone how to support any person experiencing poor mental health in that moment of crisis.

However, if you are a people leader, you’ll know that proactive support works best.

As leaders, we cannot wait until that moment of crisis to support our people. We need to know how to spot the signs early on and take preventative action.

So, if you are looking for a mental health course for your teams, check out our Mental Health for Managers workshop (delivered onsite or online), which, unlike our mental health first aid course, can be tailored to the specific needs of your organisation.

To get you started, here is our FREE guide, specifically for managers, to help them have productive conversations about mental health with their teams using The ALRIGHT Technique.

What is Mental Health First Aid?

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 and provide help on a first aid basis.

Two Day Course

Our Mental Health First Aid course is an in-depth, two day course. It equips first aiders with the essential tools and techniques they need to provide first-line mental health support in the workplace.

Day 1

Dealing with Depression and Suicide

As well as tackling the stigma surrounding mental health, day one gives managers the skills to spot signs of depression and suicidal thoughts and equips them with an appropriate first aid response.

Day 2

Anxiety disorders and other mental health conditions

Day two teaches managers to understand the signs and symptoms of a range of anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, psychosis and substance misuse, giving them an effective first aid response.
