Mental Health First Aid Training

We are currently delivering Mental Health First Aid training, which is fully funded by Haringey for front line staff who live, work, or volunteer in the borough.

The two-day course teaches participants how to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues and ways to respond appropriately. This is particularly relevant for those that work with the public, such as GP surgery staff and police and fire officers, but is useful to anyone.

These courses are extremely popular and can fill up as early as two months in advance - contact us to find out if places are still available.

This programme has been made possible thanks to funding from Public Health, and Haringey CCG’s “Promoting mental health and emotional resilience”.

The two-day standard course will take place once per month at Mind in Haringey, from October 2015.

For full details of the courses and a list of upcoming dates for 2018, please download the course description below.

How much does it cost?

If you are a front line worker in Haringey, you can attend the monthly courses at Mind in Haringey for free. If you live and work outside the borough you are welcome to attend but will be charged 125

Anyone who fails to attend or gives less than 48 hours notice of cancellation will be charged 25 for cost of materials, regardless of whether they would have been eligible to attend the course for free or not.

Do you offer concessions?

Our monthly courses are fully funded for those who meet the eligibility criteria set by our funders, and so we cannot offer any concessions for these courses to individuals who do not meet the criteria.

If you are a not for profit organisation and would like us to deliver the training to your team, we are happy to discuss a concessionary rate.

Can I just turn up on the day?

No. All MHFA courses are strictly limited to a maximum of 16 attendees. It's important for us to know how many people will be attending each course, so please contact us to find out if there is space on the course you'd like to attend.

I can't come anymore, should I let you know?

Yes please! This course is extremely popular and we can offer your place to somebody on the waiting list if you no longer need it. If you can't make it you are welcome to offer your place to a colleague, just please let us know.

Please note that if you cancel or fail to attend with less than 48 hours notice (except in the case of emergencies), you will be charged 25 to cover the cost of materials.
