RSVP to Mental Health Fist Aid Courses

Courses Now Available with Limerick Sports Partnership

Limerick Sports Partnership are delighted to be able to offer the Mental Health First Aid training. This training is provided free of charge due to our partnership with Mental Health First Aid Ireland and the HSE.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the initial help given to someone who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional support is received or until the crises resolves.

The MHFA course is a 12-hour course (4 modules, each 3 hours) that teaches people how to assist someone who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective. They will learn a framework for communication, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person towards appropriate treatments and other supportive help.

Upcoming dates are as follows:

4th & 5th November

18th & 19th November

2nd & 3rd December

9th & 10th December

While it is our intention to run this course in person, circumstances may dictate to move this course online.

Please complete the following RSVP (expression of interest) form selecting the date most suitable to you.

Participants must attend both dates to receive certification. Please do not take a place if you are unable to fully complete the course as places are limited.
