Our two day course qualifies you as an Armed Forces Mental Health First Aider.
Armed Forces Mental Health First Aiders have:
An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that affect wellbeing for the armed forces community
Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through the MOD, the NHS, support charities, or a mix
Places on the course are restricted to serving and ex-serving personnel, their family members, and support services who work with the armed forces community. We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.
Learning takes place across four manageable sessions. Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around an MHFA action plan.
Everyone who completes the course gets a manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it, and a certificate to say they are an Armed Forces Mental Health First Aider.
