This course is now available as an online course as well as classroom-based.  We are constantly reviewing our classroom based courses in line with guidance surround Covid 19 safety measures.

 

We’re proud to be licensed to deliver this programme which enables attendees to become Mental Health First Aiders in England.  The course provides an in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing.  It also provides practical skills to spot triggers and signs of a range of mental health issues and the confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress using the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan.

Online Mental Health First Aid is made up of a series of both individual learning activities and a series of live sessions hosted on the MHFA England Online Learning Hub.  Individual learning will be based on a combination of videos, workbook activities and reading, which can be done at your own pace in advance of each live session, hosted by an approved MHFA England Instructor.
