Event description

Description

Adult Mental Health First Aid (Wales) - This FREE TWO day course is for volunteers who may be supporting adults as part of their role within the community.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even 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.

You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.

*****Due to funding constraints to qualify for a Be Community Training Volunteers must be from within Monmouthshire or areas of Newport that include Caerleon, Marshfield, Graig, Langstone and Llanwern.*****
