These uncertain times have made us all more aware of our mental health and how this impacts on our physical health, emotions and behaviour. By training as a Mental Health First Aider, it is possible to help colleagues to take back control of their wellbeing as well as develop your own and an open/nurturing culture.
This Mental Health First Aid England course is a mix of weekly online self-led learning via their own learning hub, followed by 4 live online Instructor-led sessions (dates for this term above). You will not be expected to diagnose ill health but you will learn how to spot the early signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide support on a first aid basis. You will gain the confidence to respond appropriately, even in a crisis, by signposting to sources of professional and other support as well as self-care and lifestyle measures.
