Description

What will you be learning in MHFA half day course?

 Mental Health Aware Half Day course –  This half day course is a basic introduction to mental health, and why it is important. It introduces some common mental health challenges and discusses how to spot them. During this four hour course you will learn how to talk with someone who may be experiencing mental ill health, and feel more confident speaking about mental health with colleagues, friends or family. The course also will also equip you with some tools to  look after your own mental health.

Why  mental health first aid is important?

Mental Health First aid is important for several core reasons.

  1. Ill mental health is very common.  Research indicates that one in four people suffers from anxiety, panic or depression.  It is very likely that someone in your immediate environment, whether in the workplace, home or neighborhood has or will experience ill mental health. Feeling equipped to help a family member or friend who may need it is a valuable tool.
  2. Mental health is still stigmatised in our society. Stigma negatively affects those who experience ill mental health and can delay recovery. When people feel ashamed to speak about their problems with others, they might not get the help they need. By beginning to have conversations about mental health with our friends and family and in our workplaces, we can start to decrease stigma and promote positive, safe environments for anyone to discuss their mental health. Additionally, speaking up about our mental health encourages others to do the same, and can normalise mental health. Mental health and physical health should be considered equally important, as they are both integral parts of personal and public wellbeing.
  3. Many of us are misinformed about mental health. For example, a very common myth about mental health is that those with mental issues are dangerous for society. By raising awareness mental health, we can debunk discriminatory and harmful myths, help people take care of their own wellbeing as well as help others.
  4. Parity of esteem. In many respects, a mental health illnesses is similar to a physical  ailment- The longer diagnosis and treatment are delayed the higher the risk for longer term consequences. Just like we know that eating healthy foods helps our physical abilities, healthy mental habits can be equally as important to mental health. Likewise, the sooner a problem is spotted, the quicker the recovery.
  5. In emergency situations, we can often feel that we don’t know how to advise, or act.A  Mental Health First Aid courses teaches participants an action plan to use in case of emergencies. This plan is easy to remember and effective in taking steps to help someone who may need it while  making the environment safe for everyone involved.

    review rating 5  Sonia was my trainer and she was absolutely fantastic! She taught us in a very engaging and comprehensive way. I felt more confident after my training with Siren than any first aid training I've had in the past. Sirens trainers have a history of working in the emergency services, so they have real-life experiences that they can share to help you to understand why, how and what you should do in an emergency.
