What is Mental Health First Aid?


Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.


This brand new course follows the structure set down by MHFA England but uses examples and experiences that relate to the student accommodation sector.


Participants will be taught a set of skills which enables them to support a student experiencing mental health issues.


This course is being delivered by Jan Hardy, Unipol’s Tenancy Support and Wellbeing Co-Ordinator who is a qualified MHFA trainer and has over many years’ experience working in supported housing and child protection.


Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the MHFA England manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course you will also receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider.


It is important to note that active participation and group support is strongly encouraged throughout the course, as this is a key part of the skills learning process. Due to the topics being discussed group sizes are strictly kept to a minimum of 16 to enable your MHFA England associate to maintain a safe and productive learning environment for everyone.
