Event Details

Our one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies you as an MHFA Champion and you will receive a certificate upon completion of the course. This is our most popular work-based course.

MHFA Champions have:

  • An understanding of common mental health issues
  • Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health
  • Skills to support positive wellbeing

Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, the course is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan. Our in-house trainers are fully qualified and affiliated MHFA instructors.

Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it, and a certificate to say they are an MHFA Champion. You’ll also get a copy of the Line Managers' Resource, an invaluable source of advice on how to support an employee experiencing mental ill health.

The course will cover:

  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Mental health and stress in the workplace
  • Stigma and discrimination
  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Other mental health issues (eating disorders, self-harm, psychosis)
  • Early warning signs of mental ill health

  • Suicide
  • How to listen and communicate non-judgementally
  • How to give support and information
  • How to encourage the person to get appropriate professional help
  • Recovery
  • Building a mentally healthy workplace
  • Action planning for using MHFA

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day including a sandwich lunch. Please note that this course requires a minimum of 8 attendees to be able to run. We will email you a copy of our cancellation policy upon booking your place(s).
