Who is it for?

This course is for everyone! With 1 in 4 of us experiencing a mental health issue every year, it is very likely you will need to use the skills learnt in these sessions in your personal and professional life. It is particularly beneficial for front line staff, line managers and anyone who works with the general public.


What will I learn?

Our MHFA Standard course is split up into 4 manageable chunks. These are:

  • What is Mental Health?

  • Depression & Suicide

  • Anxiety, Self-harm & Eating Disorders

  • Psychosis

In each section you'll learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem

  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health problem

  • Provide help on a first aid basis

  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others

  • Help stop a mental illness from getting worse

  • Help someone recover faster

  • Guide someone towards the right support

  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems

How will I learn?

The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. Our instructors provide a very safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don't feel comfortable joining in certain bits, then don't, we won't make you do something you aren't comfortable with.

Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, including suicide, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some bits particularly difficult.

What materials will I get?

You'll receive a MHFA Adult manual, a workbook, MHFA Adult Action Plan Z-card that you can take away with you at the end of the course and also an attendance certificate from MHFA England to say you are now Mental Health First Aider. MHFA Adult Workbook and Manual
