We are delighted to collaborate with the The Thrive Team who are conducting a 2-day Mental Health First Aid training course at the stunningly located Chichester Yacht Club.

Mental health affects us all, but what if YOU had the skills of a mental health first aider to apply the correct procedures and provide the correct support to someone in distress.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach you how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and provide help on a first aid basis.

Delivered by highly trained and quality assured trainers you will learn the following skills:

* A deeper understanding of the issues that impact on and relate to people's mental health
* Practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental
health issues and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support.
* Reduces stigma around mental ill health and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support
* Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues
* Encourages people to start a conversation with a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue
* Promotes early intervention which enables recovery

The training is delivered by MHFA instructors in four manageable chunks, each with a focus on how to apply Mental Health First Aid skills.

Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the Mental Health First Aid manual, workbook and Line Managers' Resource book which are excellent support resources.
