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 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 courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended MHFA England’s Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

What will I learn?

Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions.  A hardcopy workbook and manual will be sent to an address nominated by you. After the training, you will be invited to join our MHFA Linked in community where you can continue to receive support and ideas from other MHFA-ers.

Mental Health First Aiders (previously 2-days, now delivered in 4 x 2 hour sessions plus 7 hours of home study)
