Action planning for using MHFA
The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and workshop activities.
Due to some of the sensitive subjects on the course, numbers are limited to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some parts particularly difficult.
Each participant receives a MH Champion manual, full of useful resources, to take away at the end of the course, and a certificate issued by MHFA England.
DMWS instructors are approved by MHFA England to deliver this training.
