OLDER PERSON MENTAL HEALTH FISRT AID TRAINING
The 12-hour Older Person Mental Health First Aid course is for any interested adult, particularly those who work with, live with or care for older people, including families and carers.
You will learn how to assist a person aged 65+ who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence based action plan.
This course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.
This is a 12-hour course, which will be delivered as a 2-day training package (6 hours per day)
Evaluations consistently show that MHFA training is associated with improved knowledge of mental illnesses, their treatments and appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in providing first aid to individuals with mental illness. It is also associated with decreased stigma and an increase in help provided.
