An internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help and support to someone experiencing mental health issues on a first aid basis.
Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA workbook and manual which details all learning content and highlights key points to remember and actions to take so that they can refresh their knowledge and refer back at any time, enabling them to implement their new knowledge and skills immediately. They also receive a certificate to say that they are a Mental Health First Aider.
Numbers are limited to 16 people per course so that we can ensure people feel safe and supported while they learn.
