Adult Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and to provide help on a first aid basis.

MHFA does not teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

The training is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended an Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported whilst learning. Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussion.
