About this course
We offer training in mental health awareness and also Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) both of which provide delegates with an understanding of mental health, the most common difficulties experienced and useful ‘first aid’ interventions. The principles of mental health are explained and discussed with opportunity to practice essential ‘helping’ skills for use in the workplace, home and public places.
