Monday 3 June

School Type

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. In the same way as learning physical first aid, MHFA teaches people how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health and to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Embedding a positive approach to mental health and wellbeing is well recognised as having long term benefits for our staff. The Chief Medical officer estimates that around 70 million working days are lost every year because of mental ill health, costing Britain between £70 billion and £100 billion. One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health issue in any given year; this includes adults within schools.
