“I’d like to thank you for the recent training received on MHFA at Royal Victoria Place. We had the opportunity to practice this yesterday, when we spoke with a very upset person. Without the training, it would have been really quite challenging for us to know how to approach this situation, so thank you.”

What is MHFA?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening. Each participant will be awarded a certificate in Mental Health First Aid.

The aim of a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training is to:

  • give everyone the knowledge and confidence to recognise signs of mental health problems
  • encourage someone to seek the right help
  • reduce the stigma around mental illness.
