Our two day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider. Mental Health First Aiders have:

  • An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. 

Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it, and a certificate to say they are a Mental Health First Aider.

There are two ticket options:

£25 for students only. You must also help create and deliver a basic mental health first aid training session to our clubs and societies. (you will do this with a member of staff from the union to help you) SOLD OUT!!!

£67.50 for anyone. You do not need to help create and deliver a session.  SOLD OUT!!!
