About Mental Health First Aid:

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised, two-day training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health, including how to provide support on a first aid basis. Just like how physical first aid training doesn't teach you to be a paramedic, MHFA won't teach you to be a therapist or counsellor. Instead, it will provide you with the skills and confidence necessary to listen, reassure and respond to the concerns of others, even in a crisis. Learn more about the role of a Mental Health First Aider

Delivered by a qualified MHFA instructor (accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health), learning takes place through a mixture of group activities, presentations and discussions; the aims of which are to teach you:

  • A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that affect wellbeing.
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental ill-health.
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress.
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening.
  • The knowledge to help guide others to appropriate support.

Upon completion of the two-day course, you will receive a Mental Health First Aid certificate from MHFA England.


As a provider of specialist workplace mental health services, we ensure that not only are our MHFA instructors qualified to deliver MHFA training, but that they also have a proven track record of working positively with people who have experience of mental ill-health. This enables us to provide you with high quality, professional training, whilst allowing for our facilitators to further assist you in your learning by drawing on their wider experience to effectively, and appropriately answer any mental health related questions and/ or concerns that you or a colleague might have.

The activities kept me engaged and I learnt a great deal completing the activities and listening to my peer's views on the course. This course has without a doubt been such a learning curve for me and I have really enjoyed it!"
