Mental Health First Aid is the help given to someone who is either developing a mental illness or is experiencing a mental health crisis. Like physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid is given until the person can either receive appropriate professional help or until the crisis resolves.

Duration: Two days

Certification: Participants will receive a certificate of completion.

Mental Health First Aid for Executive Coaches

The Mental Health First Aid Course teaches you how to recognise the signs and symptoms of different mental illnesses and mental health crises. It also teaches you how to offer initial help and how to guide a person toward appropriate treatments and other supportive help. The Mental Health First Aid Course does not encourage or teach people to provide a diagnosis or to give therapy.


Mental illnesses covered in the course include depression; anxiety; psychosis and substance misuse.


Mental health crises covered include how to help people with suicidal thoughts and behaviours, non-suicidal self-injury, panic attacks, traumatic events, severe psychotic states, acute effects from alcohol or other drug misuse and aggressive behaviours.


This particular mental health first aid course will be tailored to meet the needs and experiences of executive coaches. Participants will receive a copy of the recently released 4th Edition MHFA Manual, a wallet card and a certificate of completion. They will also be given the opportunity to gain a MHFA accreditation.
