Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

  • You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.

  • You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

  • What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.




  • Course delivered over four half-day sessions with independent learning between each session

  • Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities




Everyone who completes the course receives:

  • A certificate of completion, saying that they are a Mental Health First Aider

  • A 250+ page manual to refer to whenever they need it

  • A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support their own mental health


Our online sessions require no special software - just a computer with a webcam.
