What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training programme that teaches delegates how to help a person developing a mental health problem (including a substance use problem), experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Like traditional first aid, Mental Health First Aid does not teach people to treat or diagnose mental health or substance use conditions. Instead, the training teaches people how to offer initial support until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis resolves.

There are three different levels of MHFA course that we can deliver for your organisation. We can deliver a blend of courses to provide the most appropriate level of training for different groups of staff. 

Workplace MHFA Two Day

The two day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider. Mental Health First Aiders have:

  • An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • 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 further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix
