WHAT WE DO
WAHBH specialise in the delivery and implementation of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA). MHFA is a training course that teaches people how to identify, understand and support someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
We are Hummingbird Health (WAHBH) will come to your location and deliver comprehensive approved training to your employees, qualifying them as approved Mental Health First Aiders. They are then able to return to their workplace and offer in situ, bespoke and accessible mental health first aid where required.
MHFA won’t teach individuals to be a therapist, but it will teach them to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
Candidates will learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping themselves safe.
They will also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.
What’s more, they will gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma.
WAHBH offers lifetime membership to all First Aiders, where we will continue to update them in training insight. However, more importantly to create a community of first aiders so they have access to the same support they offer their co-workers - this is one of our key differentiators.
