Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Wales Training

Why is Mental Health First Aid important?

Individuals have become far more aware of mental health in recent years, which can only be a good thing. However, if we identify someone who may require support, how do we provide this?

Mental Health First Aid Wales training helps to empower people to support those in need through education; encouraging open discussion around mental health while reducing the stigma surrounding it (MHFA Wales, 2023).

What we provide

Cymorth Addysg provides both Adult and Youth MHFA Wales training to individuals and businesses.

MHFA Wales training is suitable for those who would like to increase their knowledge around mental health and how to provide Mental Health First Aid to friends, families, and co-workers.

As with physical first-aid training this training does not teach you to diagnose or treat mental health conditions, but rather increases your understanding and your ability to provide initial support to those in need using practical tools to guide you.  Please have a look at the MHFA Wales website for the feedback of previous learners.

The youth training is suitable for those who have contact with or work with young people under 25.

We can provide online training (eMHFA Wales) for those who prefer to learn and train from the comfort of their home or office without the need to travel.

If you would prefer a face-to-face experience, we can also provide classroom-based MHFA Wales training at our premises or at your business premises, meaning you can train several members of your staff at once, without needing to arrange or cover transport costs.

We also offer online and classroom-based training that individuals can book onto on a regular basis – look out for future events on our website or social media posts or contact us to register your interest and for details on our next training opportunity.

We can offer both standard and accredited qualifications.

If you would prefer more generalised training to increase your understanding of mental health, we can offer online mental health awareness training which you can do at a time which suits you.
