YOU look after your body, so why not look after your mind? Mental Health First Aid is a highly effective yet gentle tool to help everyone perform to the best of their abilities.
What is it?
Conventional First Aid is ‘first on the scene’ help for when you damage your body - and Mental Health First Aid does exactly the same for your mind. Whether you or someone you know is feeling low, struggling under pressure or showing more extreme symptoms, a trained Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) will help you get back to full mental fitness, quickly and effectively.I’m Interested
Who needs it?
Absolutely everybody. One in four of us will suffer some form of mental illness - and when a person has mental health issues, it also impacts their friends, family and colleagues. It is now widely accepted that we can all use MHFA support as we need to look after our mental health just like our physical fitness.I’m Interested
How does it work?
The growing awareness of the importance of mental health means every workplace, sports team club and society is being encouraged to appoint its own trained Mental Health First Aider - just like the requirement to have trained physical First Aiders. Normally trainees are existing staff who had additional coaching and as part of your team, they work with colleagues daily making them best placed to spot symptoms - and get the right help fast. Treatments can range from discreet in-house help to referral to a GP or psychiatric services. A trained MHFA will help you find the right path.I’m Interested

You’re in the right place. Lindsay Moody is one of the UK’s premier MHFA coaches and will train designated members of your team. On completion of Lindsay’s course, your staff will receive internationally-recognised qualifications. Click (LINK TO CONTACT) to talk with Lindsay.I’m Interested

Lindsay Moody Mental Health First Aid England Instructor
INSPIRATIONAL, motivating and understanding, Lindsay Moody is one of the UK’s leading Mental Health First Aid experts. But he doesn’t just talk the talk - as he has walked the long walk back to mental health fitness himself. Diagnosed as disabled aged 14, he was confined to a wheelchair. But using his specialist mental health training techniques, Lindsay overcame incredible odds to be selected as a Paralympic athlete before finding glory as a top able-bodied sportsman, playing cricket for Sussex and coaching the renowned Surrey Cricket Development Squad.
Lindsay’s unique, open and honest experiences resonate with the audience like no other trainer and his renowned training sessions leave attendees galvanized to overcome all challenges. Lindsay says: “It’s not a case of mind over matter, it’s mind working with matter. I can coach your staff or team to utilise both their mental and physical fitness to overcome mental health issues, perform better, be more productive and live a more fulfilled life.”
Based in South West London, Lindsay is able to travel both nationally and internationally.
HOW CAN I HELP?
IF YOU break your leg at work or while you’re out and about, you’ll probably get immediate help from a First Aider. But what if it’s your mind that’s breaking? This is where ‘Mental Health First Aiders’ provide vital help. Mental Health First Aiders - known as MHFAs - are specialist professionals trained to spot the signs of emotional distress. They provide discreet, nurturing support, aid staff welfare and even step in to prevent more serious mental health conditions developing.
Pioneered in Australia, the growing awareness of mental heath issues in the UK means the sector is expanding fast and MHFAs are now an essential addition to any workplace, club or sports team - especially those where staff are asked to perform under extreme pressures.
But with one in four Brits suffering from mental health issues over their lifetime, many more MHFAs are needed to fill the skills gap and ensure mental health is looked after as well as physical health across the country
It is a demanding but fulfilling career and one where you can genuinely make a difference to the lives of others.
Official statistics show suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 50, and women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with anxiety disorders - but imagine if you had the skills and the confidence to get that person’s life back on track.
Sometimes, taking some simple actions and making the time to ask, “Can I help?” really can save a life. And as one of the UK’s premier Mental Health First Aiders, I can help.
