MHFA – Mental Health First Aid – In person delivery
(Organisations/Community/Voluntary groups)
Delivered by myself, Vivian McKinnon and my training associate David Mulholland (ACCURATE training solutions) Both Public Health Agency (PHA) approved and accredited trainers with a wealth of experience in training delivery and the field of Mental Health Background to MHFA – In 2000, the mental health first aid (MHFA) programme was created in Canberra, Australia by Betty Kitchener, an educator and mental health service user, in partnership with Tony Jorm, a mental health researcher. The aim in creating the programme was to extend the concept of first aid training to include mental health problems so that community members were empowered to provide better initial support to people developing mental health problems or in a mental health crisis. After a successful roll out in Scotland MHFA was adapted for Northern Ireland and just recently (2021) was updated to include an understanding surrounding self-harm and eating distress. This course is delivered over 12 hours (2 6 hours days or 4x 3-hour sessions) and contains many approaches to engage and inform each participant how to look after the own mental health but to also provide immediate attention to someone in distress. This course has been designed to be taken into any setting from youth work to mature adult settings, community to corporate.
Duration : 12 hours

Investment : £175 pp (Min 10 people) or £2500 per group (Max 16 people)
