Mental Health First Aid trainingBecome a Mental Health First Aider

Mental Health Resource is delighted to offer on-site Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) classes, delivered by our approved Instructor who has been accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, helping you to take a proactive approach to mental health issues. 


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.

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.

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.

What will you learn?

The Adult MHFA two day course qualifies you as an Mental Health First Aider. Mental Health First Aiders have:

  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

Who is the course for?

Adult Mental Health First Aid training is for

  • any adult (16+) who wishes to learn more about mental health issues
  • people who, on a personal level, are supporting those with mental health needs
  • people who, in the course of their work, are supporting those with mental health needs
  • anybody working in the field of mental health

What are the costs?

Mental Health Resource is delighted to offer this training course for £300 per person for this 2 day course (including lunch).

For larger groups of 15 people, we can offer this 2 day training course for £2400.

Each participant will be awarded a certificate in Mental Health First Aid at the end of the course.
