LEARN MORE

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are developed by experts with input from people with lived experience of mental health issues. 

My vision is to normalise society’s attitudes and behaviours around mental health, by developing the skills we need to look after our own and others’ wellbeing. I want to empower people through education to care for themselves and others.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) 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 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.

You will gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.



Lucy gave us confidence, that we have the skills to help people when needed. I would 100% recommend Lucy as an Instructor to other companies looking to address the stigma of Mental Health in the work place.

Thank You again Lucy!


Learning takes place across manageable sessions.

Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.


Research and evaluation shows that 

taking part in an MHFA course will raise awareness and mental health literacy, reduce stigma around mental ill health, boost knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues and promote early intervention which enables recovery.


 


Lucy is a great trainer - she is empathetic, kind and understands that everyone learns differently. Not only is she well prepared to give training, she is very willing to bring her own experiences and stories to the group to enhance further learning. Lucy's training sessions are fun, informative and leave you feeling enthusiastic about the subject.
