Mental Health First Aid
Accredited by Mental Health First Aid England, training in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) will equip participants with a practical framework for supporting those experiencing mental health concerns.
Grounded in research, and developed with clinical practitioners, MHFA is designed to enhance participants' knowledge and confidence in how best to help others, whilst also looking after their own wellbeing
Within a church context, this programme can help participants reflect afresh on their theology of suffering, healing and recovery
All participants will receive a 100-page printed workbook, and access to digital resources for up to three years post-training, including the MHFA App which provides 24/7 digital support
The training has been warmly received by cohorts of curates, parish priests, chaplains, area deans, and archdeacons.
