Become a Mental Health First Aider online

MHFA England is the national licensed organisation for MHFA training in England. This course, delivered by fully qualified instructors, qualifies attendees as Mental Health First Aiders, according to the MHFA England model. This two day course will give you:

  • 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.

Attendees who complete the course will be recognised as Mental Health First Aiders by MHFA England.

Training Options

As experienced workplace Mental Health First Aid trainers, we run two types of MHFA Training courses to suit organisations of all sizes. Presently, these courses can be delivered online, as well as face-to-face, when safe to do so.

What are the benefits of the MHFA Training Two Day Webinar?

In these uncertain times, the mental health of our employees will be challenged. Already, one in six of us are experiencing a mental health issue at any given time and, with home working and isolation on the rise, this will naturally only become more of a problem.

Offering your employees the opportunity to complete this training course and to become recognised by MHFA England as a Mental Health First Aider is a fantastic step to take to protect the mental health of your employees in the current climate and moving forward.
