BECOME A MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AIDER

Mental Health

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) (Adult) Training is a PHA accredited training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

This course is ideal for individuals who would like to become a MHFA in their workplace to gain the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health and to be confident to start a conversation and signpost for appropriate support.

What’s more you will gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma around mental health in your workplace.

There are currently approximately 200 EA Mental Health First Aiders across our schools and corporate settings.

If you would like to become a Mental Health First Aider for your school or workplace or would like further information on becoming a MHFA then please email healthandwellbeing@eani.org.uk

There will be a number of cohorts of MHFA training sessions held in the New Year and the details will be issued to all those on the waiting list for the training. The training will be held over two full days and will be face to face in a range of locations.
