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 our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

The course aims to provide information, tools and techniques that you can use in a real-life setting.

Courses range from 8-16 participants and full attendance of the 2 days is required to qualify for certification. If you are interested in having a course near you, please get in touch using the Contact Form or by Registering Your Interest.
