Mental Health First Aid Training

In March 2016 York Mind successfully submitted a funding application to North Yorkshire County Council to train a member of staff to become a qualified instructor and enable them to deliver Mental Health First Aid Training (MHFA).

MHFA is a 2 day certificated course that teaches participants five key skills to feel confident helping someone experiencing distress. Particpants will learn how to spot the early signs of a mental health problem, guide someone towards the right support and signpost for professional help. This course is suitable for anyone who would like to gain new skills for their personal or professional life.
