Ouch training team are excited to now offer online Mental health first aid England (adult 2 day training course).
Online Mental Health First Aid will offer the same learning outcomes as the face to face training and every person who completes the course will be certified as a Mental Health First Aider.
The Online Mental Health First Aid course is a blended approach of individual learning and four instructor-led live sessions, hosted on a new Online Learning Hub.
As a training course, Mental Health First Aid teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. The organisation’s courses and resources also promote self-care as vital way for people to help protect their mental health and prevent issues from getting worse.
But where to start? Ouch are now offering a wide range of training to support organisations in their implementation and monitoring of the core standards recommended by the review. Our training is delivered by an experienced and qualified ‘Mental Health First Aid (MHFA England)’ instructors.
The programme has been designed to provide an appropriate level of skills and information to allow individuals to carry out their role in the implementation of a mental health at work plan.
Open courses are delivered in both Dorset and Manchester. Courses can also be delivered in-house nationwide.
MHFA came to England in 2007 and was launched under the Department of Health: National Institute of Mental Health in England (NIMHE) as part of a national approach to improving public mental health.
Mental health education empowers people to care for themselves and others by reducing stigma through understanding. Ouch hope to break down barriers to the support that people may need to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
Furthermore, MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
