The 2 day MHFA Course for the Armed Forces Community will train people to:
  • Explore their understanding of military culture
  • Increase their personal resilience
  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem
  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
  • Help stop a mental illness from getting worse
  • Help someone recover faster
  • Guide someone towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems

Veterans and their families, as well as members of service charities and others who work with veterans, will be given the opportunity to go on a course to teach the mental health equivalent of first aid skills and give people the knowledge and confidence to spot the signs that someone could be suffering and support them.

SSAFA (the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) is delivering the project in a collaborative partnership between themselves, MHFA England CIC, Combat Stress and the Royal British Legion.
