Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) refresher training delivered on your premises. Support your Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAiders) and keep them performing at their best with our Mental Health First Aider Refresher course.
Our understanding of how best to recognise and tackle mental health conditions is improving all the time. It’s therefore essential that MHFAiders keep their skills up to date so that they can support your organisation in protecting employee mental health. Our refresher course aims to build confidence and help participants master their role as mental health champions.
MHFAiders are required to complete a refresher course every two years. Our face-to-face Mental Health First Aider refresher training is an ideal way for your MHFAiders to renew skills, update their knowledge of mental health best practice and apply new MHFA techniques. Please note, our course is only run for those who have completed the Mental Health First Aid Two Day course.
The face-to-face sessions allow participants to connect with their peers and share their thoughts and experiences with other Mental Health First Aiders. Guided group participation is often one of the most invaluable parts of the refresher sessions, giving everyone a chance to have conversations about mental health and gain feedback from colleagues.
Discussing the role with colleagues can be a powerful way of sharing learning and improving skills. It allows MHFAiders to practice their listening skills, share advice and examples, discuss mistakes or difficult topics, and will also help to generate ideas within the group.
MHFA Refresher training should form part of your ongoing employee wellbeing strategy, ensuring that best practice is reviewed at regular intervals and that staff are formally updated and engaged with important mental health issues as well as techniques for creating a happy and healthy workplace. The training will help to create a workplace culture that’s proactive at addressing mental health issues.
The four-hour MHFA Refresher training course will enable you to:
- Keep your awareness of mental health supports current
- Update your knowledge of mental health and what influences it
- Practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan
- Practice sessions so everyone has the chance to have mental health conversations and gain feedback from peers
