About this Event
The Online MHFA course is constructed of TWO parts:
- Part A – 7 hours of online self-learning (27th Jan – 2nd Feb)
- Part B – 2 virtual sessions over Zoom with our MHFA trainers (3&4 Feb: 7 pm – 9:30 pm)
* Participants are required to complete 5hours of self-learning before entering the 2 Zoom sessions on 16 & 17 DEC (7 pm – 9:30 pm).
What is MHFA? An internationally recognised and accredited qualification. Just like physical health first aid, mental health first aid teaches practical ways to manage mental health symptoms and crises. Participants will gain a sound knowledge of a wide range of mental health diagnoses, ways to assess and directly help those experiencing a mental health problem, and how to effectively refer them to further support.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) will cover:
- Basic knowledge about common mental health problems and related crisis situations
- What you can provide as a layperson and when to get help
- MHFA Action Plans
- Intervening and managing mental health emergencies as a first responder like Panic attacks, Suicide, Self-harm and Addictions
- Identify the resources available in the local community
Completion of this MHFA training will lead to being internationally certified in MHFA. A certificate will be awarded to participants with FULL attendance. All of our trainings are delivered by Mind HK staff or Mental Health Professionals. The minimum age for attendance is 18.
