Overview

To become a Mental Health First Aider you must complete a two day MHFA course.

This is our most comprehensive awareness and skills course, which includes a mix of presentations, discussions and group work activities.

Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has completed our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.

Anyone can attend an MHFA course but an interest in mental health and wellbeing is desirable. When you have completed the course, you will receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider and a fold-out card summarising the five-step MHFA action plan to carry with you.
