Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health is just as, if not more important than physical health. Coaches often develop bonds with their athletes, in turn creating a safe environment to have these conversations, should they feel the need to. A coach can be a vital person in an athlete's life, away from friends and family members who may judge them for their feelings.

MHFA won't teach you to become a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and potentially stop a crisis from happening. You'll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe. You'll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need to recover or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups and more.

All courses are delivered online or face-to-face and are accredited by MHFA England and come with a certification that lasts 3 years.

The Mental Health First Aider (Youth or Adult) online course is a 15 hour online interactive course which explores various mental health conditions in depth, what signs to look out for and how to approach and assist those who you believe may need help. The 15-hour course is delivered over 4 days (in 3.5-hour segments).
