Mental Health First Aid (Adult)

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training courses teach people to notice the signs and symptoms of mental health issues, explore ways of offering initial help and also to encourage an individual towards the appropriate care and support they need.

The training doesn’t teach people to diagnose or to become therapists, it supports people to develop their skills around listening and responding to people experiencing mental health issues, even in crisis situations – it may even stop a crisis from happening.
