England’s Mental Health First Aid – London 1/2 Sept

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.

You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.

For more information, you can go to: http://www.mhfaengland.org

The course will be delivered by Parkour UK’s Head of Development, Chris Grant. Chris is a qualified mental health first aid instructor in England and Scotland and has a wide experience of delivering the course over the last 4 years in and out of the Parkour community.

Testimonials:

“It’s unsurprising that parkour, a discipline about overcoming obstacles in your life attracts people that are grappling with difficult times. As a parkour coach, it was great to sit down and learn the basics of what was and wasn’t appropriate to say when speaking to those going through mental health challenges and to learn best practice.” (John Hall, Access Parkour)

“This was one of the most powerful courses  I have genuinely ever been on, from day one to finish I was kept fully engaged and motivated throughout. I now feel confident in my role & gained the confidence I need to facilitate conversation around mental health.” (Participant – Scotland’s Mental Health First Aid delivered by Chris Grant)

Once you have booked on the course you will be sent a link to register through the Mental Health First Aid England website within 2 working days. It is mandatory to register your information at this link to participate in the course.
