There is little doubt that mental health is very important in everybody’s life. However, people might not know how to help their friends and loved ones who are dealing with mental health problems. Luckily, there is a first aid course that can help you prepare for such instances. Here are the requirements for Mental Health First Aid training.
What is Mental Health First Aid Training?
Mental Health First Aid training (MHFA) is a special course that teaches participants simple, practical first aid skills. These skills are designed to inform the participant on how to help other people who are experiencing mental health problems.
The MHFA course teaches participants how to listen and respond to someone with a mental health problem. This is even more important when they are experiencing a crisis. Participants learn how to help people access the support needed so they can manage their symptoms. This will then play an important part in their recovery journey.
What are the Requirements for Mental Health First Aid Training?
Participants must provide a valid photo I.D. like a driver’s license, passport, student card, or proof of age card. A basic understanding, reading and writing of English is also required. This means you will need to complete an LLN assessment to determine your eligibility for enrolment into the course.
