- Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

Mental health is something we all have, some days it is better than others. Online Mental Health First Aid (OMHFA) is a training course that will equip you with the tools and knowledge to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA will teach you to listen without judgment, reassure someone with concerns and respond, even in a crisis – and could potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe, which is an important skill to have when helping others.
You’ll also learn how to sign-post the support someone may need for recovery or successful management of symptoms.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
"Good course for developing further awareness regarding Mental Health.I do like that it was emphasised that self care is the priority"

"Great course!! Jo was amazing, she's very relatable and gave excellent scenario's and answered all questions to ensure everyone understood . Some tough discussions but Jo created a very safe environment for us all to be able to speak openly and share views"
"It is very interesting to learn and understand more about mental health, mental health issues and how to support not only yourself but others in helping to identify potential issues and how to approach someone in discussing what you have observed.It has given me more confidence and skills to approach someone if this arises."
