What will I learn?

Our quality assured MHFA trainers deliver training that has been designed to fit into four manageable chunks.

These are:

  1. Mental Health First Aid, mental health, and depression
  2. Depression (cont.) and suicidal crisis
  3. Anxiety, personality disorders, eating disorders and self harm
  4. Psychosis, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

In each section you’ll learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health issue
  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health issue
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
  • Help stop a mental health issue from getting worse
  • Help someone recover faster
  • Guide someone towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health issues.

How will I learn?

The MHFA course takes place over two days.

The sessions will be a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities

Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the MHFA manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course you will receive an accreditation certificate from Mental Health First Aid England to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health First Aider.
