MHFA logoMental Health First Aider training is an internationally recognised training course designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

Having colleagues who can recognise early signs of mental health issues and who have the skills to safely act as a first point of contact is incredibly valuable, and shows employees that you value their mental health as much as you do their physical health
