What is Mental Health First Aid?

MHFA teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

MHFA England training won’t teach people to be therapists, but just like physical first aid, it will teach them to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

What’s included in Mental Health First Aid training:

Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations, and discussions to provide:

  • A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing, including your own
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support

All participants will receive a course manual, pocket mental health guide and certificate upon completion of the training.
