Mental Health First Aid
Adult Mental Health First Aid is a nationally accredited 2-day training course which gives participants the knowledge and skills to recognise the early signs of mental ill-health and support someone to seek the right help. On completion of the course, participants receive a certificate (they must attend both days)
The course helps people to:
- Spot the early signs of a mental health problem
- Feel confident helping someone experiencing a problem
- Provide help on a first aid basis
- Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
- Help stop a mental illness from getting worse
- Help someone recover faster
- Guide someone towards the right support
Mental Health First Aid would benefit anyone, from carers and family members, to employers or worker who might provide support to someone with mental health problems.
We are able to offer the course for free and to people living and working in Oxfordshire with funding from Oxfordshire County Council and the NHS Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Cluster.
Each year, we run a number of courses open to public in Oxfordshire. We also run courses specifically for organisations, employers or community groups. You simply need to provide 16 participants and a venue if suitable, and we will provide an accredited trainer.
