Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a practical skills and awareness course that teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.  MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

  • learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery 
  • gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you

This course is certified by MHFA England.
