What is Mental Health First Aid? Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA England training won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Adult MHFA England courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. Every MHFA England course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor Member who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.Essential Information

Course Outline: Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases delivered by ST Thomas Training
Annual refresher to update your knowledge on the Mental Capacity Act
The training is split into two sessions over consecutive days. The training will look at a range of cases which have been considered by the Court of Protection, to see what lessons can be learnt for our everyday practice.
Mental Capacity Act cases go to the Court of Protection either where there is conflict amongst the people involved, and/or where the issue is so serious or complicated that it cannot be resolved through meetings and negotiation. The rulings of the Court, and the reasons for those rulings, can be invaluable in helping health & social care practitioners deal with similar issues in their own practice.
Who should attend?
Anyone who works in a health and/or social care setting (eg hospitals, social worker teams, OT, ISA, residential or community care, GP surgeries etc). Participants should already be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session.
This course will provide an essential introduction to the Mosaic system, covering the essential skills you will need to navigate the system and maintain client records.
This session will be held online using Microsoft Teams - a link to the online meeting will be attached to the booking confirmation email.
This practical course offers an opportunity to try out a notebook based reflective ‘to-do list’ system and explore ways of integrating resilience and self-care strategies into busy lives.
The course is tailored to meet the needs of managers and leaders in social work and related settings. We will use an adaptation of the Bullet Journal to explore some of the latest thinking on effective systems and habits which support focus, intentional working and personal wellbeing.
This training has a maximum group size of 10 and provides a safe space to share ideas and troubleshoot challenges with other managers. Participants are invited to try out this adaptation of the Bullet Journalling system as a month long experiment.Essential Information
As we progress through and out of the current pandemic, the majority of our teams are expected to be operating a hybrid model of working with some staff located in the office, either part or full-time, and some staff working from home. This model of team leadership is entirely novel to the vast majority of our managers and some of the challenges it will bring cannot be entirely known or understood at this point.
This one-hour facilitated virtual event for PCC, GBC and NHS / CCG managers is part of a learning package intended to support managers in effectively leading a hybrid team. The other part of the package is going to be a module on the intranet where managers can access self-help learning materials and tools.
The seminar will be conversational rather than a one-way content dump, so please come to the session with a question for the facilitators, or share what you have learnt and other effective practices you've implemented since March 2020.
This seminar will also be help L&D in identifying the support needs and concerns of our managers so that we can provide a more bespoke offering later. So please give this some thought before attending.
