Get expert mental health first aid training
Looking to take a proactive approach to dealing with mental health issues in the workplace? Want your staff to know how to identify the common symptoms and learn how to act upon them?
Mental Health First Aid Adult from Health Assured, the UK’s leading Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provider, is a two-day course delivering just that.
The training is fully certified and follows the internationally recognised Mental Health First Aid England (Adult) course.
Virtual MHFA courses
Due to the unprecedented circumstances of the current pandemic, we now offer virtual training, meaning you can become a mental health first aider via an online course. This provides the same detailed training as the in-person sessions, and is fully certified. To participate, delegates must complete a seven hour pre-course—this will be provided online.
All you need is a computer, tablet or smartphone with video capability, an internet connection, and a place to sit for the two-day course.
8-12 delegates can participate in the training—contact us for more information today.
On this two-day course, you will learn how to:
- Identify the early stages of a mental health problem
- Help someone who’s dealing with a mental health issue
- Help stop someone from self-harming or hurting others
- Help stop mental ill health from worsening
- Help someone have a quicker recovery
- Guide someone towards proper professional help
- Break the stigma of a mental health problem
Get free mental health first aid resources
Everyone who attends the course will be provided with complimentary resources, including a mental health first aid manual containing a wealth of information, a workbook, and a ‘Z card’ that can be used to identify mental health first aiders in the workplace.
Become a certified mental health first aider
Every employee who completes the course will become a qualified mental health first aider and earn a certificate from MHFA England.
MHFA refresher courses
MHFA England recommend that qualified Mental Health First Aiders and Champions attend refresher courses every three years. This helps keep their training fresh in their minds, and provides updates on best practice and new methods.
They’re short courses—around four hours. A minimum of eight attendees are required, with a maximum of 25.
By doing the refresher course, you will:
Renew your skills
Update your knowledge of mental health support
Practice the application of a MHFA action plan
