“Course very informative on all levels. Will be helpful to help others with mental health difficulties”
“This course will help in the work I choose to do, and benefit my family”
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training is an interactive and practical training course to help you spot the early signs of a mental health problem. It will equip you with tools and techniques to help you, your friends, family and colleagues.
What you say, how you say it, and how well you listen, can have a profound impact on someone who is emotionally distressed or having a difficult time. Everyone can learn and benefit from MHFA skills.
Mental Health First Aid Training (MHFA) is a nationally and internationally-recognised training course delivered by our experienced, fully-qualified MHFA Instructor.
The aim is to give you the knowledge, skills and understanding to identify symptoms, so you can support yourself and others experiencing mental health problems.
