What is Mental Health First Aid training?

MHFA logoMental Health First Aid 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

Our programme provides:

  • A foundation understanding of mental health challenges and conditions;
  • Tools and outlines for approaching and interacting with colleagues who might be experiencing issues;
  • High quality documentation and support resources;
  • MHFA England certification.

After completing the course successfully, participants will possess:

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues;
  • The confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress;
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening;
  • The knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support.

MHFA delivery

Our Mental Health First Aid training is offered as either a two-day in-person course at a Covid-secure venue in Bromley (we can also come to your in-house venue) or a four half-day online course.
