Mental Health First Aid - Overview
Mental Health First Aid is a two-day course that
teaches people to spot the symptoms of common mental health issues and
recognise the early signs that someone may need support. By applying their
training, students can help colleagues with a mental health issue receive the
support they need to recover or manage their symptoms.
A trained Mental Health First Aider in your workplace can start productive conversations about mental health, be a role model for how to manage mental health, promote greater understanding of the importance of mental health, and play a significant part in ending stigma and discrimination around mental health in the workplace.
Upon completion of the two-day course, you will receive a Mental Health First Aid certificate from MHFA England and a Mates in Mind MHFA Hardhat sticker to communicate your commitment to improving the awareness of mental health in our industry.
Please be advised that access to the course is exclusive to Mates in Mind Supporters. If you are interested in becoming a Supporter, send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org .
