Awareness of FAMH Distance Learning Overview
This half-day Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health (AFAMH) course provides learners with an understanding of mental health, which helps break down the stigma associated with mental health.
It is reported that this year 1 in 4 of us will suffer from mental health. Therefore, the course is aimed at everyone to provide the skills to recognise someone who may be suffering from mental health and to signpost them to the support they need.
Awareness of FAMH Syllabus
A range of topics are covered including:
- What is First Aid for Mental Health?
- Breaking down stigma
- Identifying common mental health conditions
- Signposting to support
The course is delivered through a mixture of self-study and virtual classrooms.
The candidate will be given access to online resources which involve reading, interactive videos, reflective questions and quizzes.
The online learning will be supported by 2 virtual classroom sessions which will embed the information learnt in the online materials. The virtual sessions are very interactive utilising virtual breakout rooms, annotations on the presentation and interactive polls.
The delivery time will be agreed at the time of booking, with a maximum of three weeks being allowed. During this period of time, candidates will have access to the support of a tutor who can help them if they find the content is emotive.
The course includes access to the online materials and the First Aid for Mental Health Awareness handbook produced by Instructuk Resources Ltd to support the course.
