The idea of MHFA is that people should be taught how to perform basic 'first aid' for those exhibiting signs of mental health distress, just as we are currently taught physical first aid.
Mental Health First Aid is for everyone. Mental Health problems are extremely common with one in four people experiencing some kind of mental health problem in any one year.
Depression, stress and anxiety for instance, are widespread problems that affect thousands of people in Wales. Despite this, people do not always feel confident to discuss mental health or to offer the initial support that people need.
At Newport Mind we have trained instructors who can deliver this course to your staff, workplace or groups of any kind. We can run the courses from your place of work or rooms are available at Newport Mind.
Dates for our Mental health First Aid courses are:
- Thursday 27 and Friday 28 September 2018, 9.30am - 4.00pm
- Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 December 2018, 9.30am - 4.00pm
All courses are taught from the training rooms at Newport Mind's offices on Commercial Street, Newport. The cost is £120 per delegate.
