Mental Health First Aid
We provide three levels of service - We can train your staff to become Menatal Health First Aiders, Mental Health Champions or provide Mental Health Awareness workshops.
ONLINE COURSES ARE COMING; COVID 19 UPDATE; Due to the current virus, all face to face training is being adapted to suit online delivery. Two-day and One-day MHFA England-accredited courses will be available ONLINE from June 2020
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? We can offer discounts of up to 50% against the recommended prices (Two-day Mental Health First Aid -
£300, One-day Mental Health Champion - £200) for non-profit organisations and for block-bookings of 4 or more delegates - contact Paddy@paddystanleyandassociates.com for more details.
The two-day course takes place over four sessions, detailed below, which follow the Mental Health First Aid action plan. Each delegate receives a MHFA manual, a workbook and a lanyard-ready Z-card. The One-day course covers very similar subject matter, but in less depth, so we recommend organisations consider a blend of Two-day MHFA and One-day MHFA Champion courses.
