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 England training 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 England courses are for everyone aged 18 upwards.
Every MHFA England course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor Member who has attended MHFAE’s in depth Instructor Training Programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.
When you complete your course you will get a certificate of attendance and a manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it.
We believe that mental health should be treated equally to physical health. And just like physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid training should be kept up to date.
If you’re a Mental Health First Aider or MHFA Champion, take the MHFA Refresher course within three years to:
