Let’s Mentally Flourish!
Why Choose Us
Mental health first aid is a relatively new concept in the field of mental health, but it’s quickly gaining traction as an important means of addressing mental health issues.
The MHFA training covers an introduction to mental health and mental illnesses, recognising different signs of mental illness, responding to a crisis situation, and connecting a person with treatment options. It’s important to learn more about this unique program that can help you help others.
At Mental Health & Life, we are committed to bringing mental health issues to the forefront of society in order to ensure its acceptance. In doing so, we can help spread awareness and broaden the general understanding of what mental health consists of.
Knowledge is power. And if more people have greater knowledge of this widespread medical crisis, they will have the power to make a difference in the lives of others.
At Mental Health & Life, we are dedicated to bringing greater awareness of mental health issues and concerns. After all, our founder, Richie Perera, started Mental Health & Life after living a large part of his life unaware that he, too, suffered from mental health disorders.
It was only after numerous appointments that Richie was diagnosed with anxiety disorder and mixed depression. As such, we believe that others who suffer from mental health issues should receive the immediate care and attention that they deserve.
Benefits of This Course
When you take part in our Adult MHFA Champion Course, you will gain a better understanding of common mental health issues. And as such, you will be able to identify signs of potential mental health illnesses.
Your newfound knowledge will give you the confidence to be a powerful advocate for spreading awareness. In this day and age, it is more important than ever for those suffering from mental illnesses to have strong support options.
With the training you receive, you will be better equipped to assist those who need support and guidance.
Turning the Page on Ignorance and Superstition
If you encountered a fellow human being who was in the midst of a mental health crisis, and seemed isolated, alone and in need of help, would you know what to do? If you answered “no”, don’t feel bad. Neither would the vast majority of other people.
Instead of blaming or shaming people for their lack of wherewithal when it comes to mental health issues, we think a better approach is to give them the tools they have been lacking. The Adult MHFA Champion Course is the first step in that empowerment process.
A Better World Through Mental Health Education
At Mental Health & Life our goal is to cast off the cloud of misunderstanding, fear and bigotry that hangs over the head of people who suffer from mental health conditions. The only way to do that is to educate one person at a time about the realities of common mental health issues, and to provide them with the knowledge that will enable them to intervene (if necessary) in a productive fashion.
As much as we like to think of ourselves as ultra-sophisticated, 21st-century masters of earth, space and technology the fact is that most, if not all, of our attitudes about those with mental health issues have their roots in the superstition and ignorance of centuries past. It’s not our fault, but it is our problem, and the sooner we act to rectify it the better the world as a whole will be.
Levelling the Field Between Physical and Mental Health
Something as simple as the 1 Day Adult MHFA Champion Course can be a catalyst, propelling the learner out of the Dark Ages of misunderstanding into a new day where physical and mental health are regarded the same by everyone, and where informed adults are just as likely and able to intervene in a mental health emergency as they would be if someone needed CPR.
Don’t delay. Sign up today for the 1 Day Adult MHFA Champion Course and invest a day in making yourself a more well-rounded citizen and, potentially, a true champion in the life of someone in need.
