All About The Mind

mental health

1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year

Mental illness is the second-largest source of burden of disease in England. Mental illnesses are more common, long-lasting and impactful than other health conditions. But approximately only 1 in 8 adults who need help are currently getting any kind of treatment.

You are more likely to come across someone having suicidal thoughts than someone having a heart attack.

Would you know how to help?

Become a mental health first aider

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course. It teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA England training won’t teach you to be a therapist. But just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. MHFA England courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards and every course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor Member who has attended an MHFA England Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

We provide both in person and online courses taught by James Chapman, an accredited Instructor Member, approved by MHFA England to deliver Adult and Youth MHFA courses.

Youth Mental Health First Aid – Online

Both the online sessions and the additional resources are excellent. In the live sessions, opportunity to talk and share ideas and experiences was invaluable. Completing the workbook and accessing the other resources such as videos and case studies provided opportunity for reflection and consolidating existing knowledge. The discussions always felt safe and respectful with plenty of time given to ensuring participants were comfortable and could opt-out if needed, as the subject matter is at times challenging. There were practical skills with suggestions as to how to approach and assess people and situations while maintaining personal space, integrity and safety. Although I felt I already had reasonable knowledge and skills prior to this course, I learned new things that I can put into practice straight away in my work and daily life.
