Mental Health Awareness Training
MHFA England Course

Mental health, in general is still shrouded in misconceptions and myths. Within this half day mental health awareness course we aim to humanise and de-stigmatise mental health. We will highlight common misconceptions surrounding mental health. We will have a brief look at the most common mental health conditions, warning signs of a developing mental health issue and build confidence in talking to someone in distress. You will also learn how your own mental health can be cultivated to improve your own wellbeing. 

 

The course centres on a journey around the Mental Health Continuum which demonstrates how our mental health is fluid and changes over time, there are no absolutes.
