Outcomes expected

MHFA and MHFA Lite both increase awareness of common mental health issues, this enables you to have a much better understanding of your own and other peoples mental health needs and supports more informed and engaged communities.

The learning will help you to determine ‘This is Me’, to consider your frame of reference, begin looking at ways you can look after your mental health and self-care strategies, whilst encouraging personal and interpersonal development.

The Confidence Building Workshop (6 sessions) would build on the learning from MHFA – more focussed towards ‘I’m Ready’ by encouraging you to Understand Confidence, Coping with Stress, Learning to Relax Body and Mind, Body Language for Confidence, Visualisation, Affirmations and Positive Psychology and Planning and Preparing for new/and or difficult situations.

Monthly Support Group would provide regular peer support enabling you to continue learning by peer experience.

From each activity we would expect to see improved levels in wellbeing from delegates and we would monitor and feedback on this using WEMWBS (Warwick & Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale).
