Mental Health First Aid Training

Mersey Care has partnered with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England to increase it's pool of staff whom have the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health, be confident to start a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support.​

The trust will soon be offering opportunities to enable staff to complete the training. In the interim, we are looking to hear from existing staff whom have already completed the training.
