Last week saw the delivery of MHFAEngland’s latest version of their 2-day Adult training programme in Mental Health which qualifies delegates to be First Aiders in this critical area.
The robust manual – heavy but yet of interesting facts, figures, resources takes the fear out of the subject. The interactive sections – Graffiti Wall, Anxiety Face, Stress Container and Depression T-Shirt were well received. The films brought home the key points.
So, what did the 13 managers from the private sector think of giving up two days to do this course?
Almost an even split on the question ‘As a result of the training, I am less likely to judge people with mental health issues negatively’ – 7 strongly agreed. The 6 remaining Agreed. So – some hearts and minds were definitely changed!
‘As a result of this training, I am more likely to consider mental health and mental ill health a normal part of everyday life’ – bigger shift here – 10 strongly agreed and remaining three agreed.
‘How would you rate the MHFA course’? – 100% rated it top marks with’ Very Good’.
As the Instructor – I’m very pleased to see 100% of the delegates gave me top marks of ‘Very Good’!
Some general comments included:
‘Really well delivered course. Feel like I’ve learnt plenty to take away and implement’
‘The course and its delivery was excellent – thank you’.
‘Extremely useful – sharing tools and giving confidence’
‘Excellent course. I would like to see it rolled out to all managers’
