The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course Rosedale Training held in Diss in September this year has produced some really positive feedback with 100% of the delegates rating their personal confidence on a scale of 1 (lowest) and 10 (highest) of how best to deal with others with a mental health issue, as 8 or above: prior to the course 70% of our 11 delegates had rated themselves as 5 or below.
65% scored their knowledge & understanding of how to support others with a mental health issue prior to taking the course as 4 or below with an outstanding 100% rating themselves as 8 or above when the two day course finished.
As a result of the training, 90% strongly agreed that they were less likely to judge people with a mental health issue and over 80% strongly agreed they were more likely to consider mental health and mental ill health as a normal part of everyday life.
Mental health is a part of so many people’s every day life and the support they receive, especially in the workplace, can make their day far more bearable and easier to cope with. Having someone to talk to and offer advice or just a listening ear can make such a difference.
Mental Health First Aid courses deliver the necessary skills that enable people to improve their understanding of their own wellbeing, as well as helping them to see it in others and guiding that person in the right direction to enable them to receive the appropriate help and support.
“People with mental health conditions deserve just as much support and compassion as people with physical health conditions.”
“Not all wound are so visible. Walk gently in the lives of others.”
“Never underestimate the pain of a person, because in all honesty, everyone is struggling. Just some people are better at hiding it than others.”
