Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA) Resources
July 13, 2018
0

 MHFA came to England in 2007 and was launched under the Department of Health: National Institute of Mental Health in England (NIMHE) as part of a national approach to improving public mental health.

MHFA training courses were first developed in Australia in 2001. In the years since it has evolved into a global movement with licensed programmes in 24 countries and counting. Over two million people have been trained in MHFA skills worldwide.

They have numerous free resources to download on their website tailored to schools, workplaces and universities.

For example, their  Line Managers Resource is an increasingly valuable tool for line managers across the spectrum of private, public and third–sector organisations. Exceptionally practical, the resource offers a step-by-step framework for creating healthier workplaces and has traditionally focused on key areas such as how to spot an employee experiencing mental ill health, and how to manage and support them at work, while they are off sick, and when they return after sickness absence. The resource also provides signposts to relevant employment legislation and further sources of help for both the individual and the organisation.

IAG Handbook

Learning in Wiltshire is Wiltshire Council’s adult learning and development service. http://www.learninginwiltshire.org.uk/ They are proud holders of the matrix Standard http://matrixstandard.com/ which is the unique quality framework for the effective delivery of information, advice and/or guidance.

All Learning in Wiltshire staff give Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) as part of their commitment to help learners and potential learners explore options, get the best out of their learning programme and continue to develop their skills to higher levels after completion of their course or qualification. Their IAG is split into three:

  • Initial IAG – given by occupationally competent assessors in the form of a telephone conversation lasting approx. 20 minutes.
  • Ongoing IAG – incorporated within the learning programme and evidenced throughout the learning journey in a variety of ways e.g. ILPs, e-portfolio, reviews, tutorials etc.
  • Exit IAG – informs future development needs and allows our learners to be signposted to relevant progression pathways.

They have developed an IAG handbook for their learners.
