What Red Umbrella can offer Nottingham Law Society Members

Many companies are instigating MHFA training, but without adequate systems in place  for the employees specific to mental health, or anything in place for the newly accredited MHFA's themselves. We are very unique as the huge advantage to having Red Umbrella provide the accredited 2 day Mental Health First Aid Course and the Half Day Course as we don't just offer the training then leave the participants to their own devices - on their own, we know that a MHFA may well have unpleasant and unexpected conversations with their colleagues and need support and advice not just for their colleagues, but to protect their own mental health as well.

As discussed most companies have an on-site First Aider for when an employee is physically hurt, so why wouldn’t you have a Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) for when an employee is experiencing emotional distress? Just like a first aider, MHFAs are there to place on the plaster until the appropriate person can take over. They are trained to spot early signs of afflictions, gaining the confidence to approach people and ask that prying question: are you really okay?

It is important to consider that despite the skills MHFAs learn, they can be put in uncomfortable and stressful situations. This can cause distress and anxiety to themselves. Other companies will offer MHFA training and then their job with you is done. Within the cost of training, our qualified team support your MHFA's with anything they take on-board via our 24/7 support line and, if necessary, access to our therapists/coaches via Skype. 

What to expect

Our Adult MHFA Two Day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider

  • An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgmental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

We provide 2 trainers so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.

You will get an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it.

When you complete the two days you'll get a certificate to say you are a Mental Health First Aider.
