Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA)

We have a number of staff and PhD students trained as MHFA all of which will have received 2-day Adult Mental Health First Aid training from MHFA England. The course equips first aiders with the following skills:

  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

If you'd like a conversation re mental health or need signposting to further support, please contact any of us from the list below.
