Mental Health First Aider (Adult) 2 day (Online blended learning)


Choose Ouch because not all training is the same!

Mental Health First Aider (Adult) – Online Blended Learning

The on-line course covers the same content as the 2 day face to face option, but in a way which is designed to increase flexibility and accessibility for delegates.

The On-line Mental Health First Aid course is interactive and is delivered through slides, video clips, activities, discussion and case studies which you will explore as a group to deliver studies, which we exported and reinforced with embed learning. The course utilises the MHFA England on-line learning hub to facilitate individual learning activities and a series of live sessions. Individual learning will be based on a combination of videos, workbook activities and reading. This can be done at your own pace in advance of each live session. The live sessions are led by one of our Ouch trainers approved MHFA England Instructors.

Individual Learning

The course on the On-line Learning Hub, will direct you through all the individual learning activities. Please make sure to complete all the activities you need to in advance of each live session. Once a live session has taken place, the next set of activities you need to complete will be made available. The activities include reading through pages of your MHFA Course Manual, watching videos and answering some reflective questions. Ensure you allow enough time to complete these activities between sessions. It is important to recognise that this course covers material which you may find emotionally triggering. Your self care is important and your safety throughout is our priority. Please consider identifying someone who could potentially support you during or after the course if you need it. Please take some time to identify this person before the course starts.
