What is Mental Health First Aid?
Updated: Oct 19, 2022
Train as a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider®) and receive three years of certification, plus access to ongoing benefits.
This course is ideal for individuals who would like to become an MHFAider® to gain the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health, be confident to start a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and potentially stop a crisis from happening.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
The course will equip Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAiders®) with:
The knowledge and skills to spot signs of a person experiencing poor mental health
The confidence to be able to support themselves and others
The support to feel empowered and motivated to carry out their role
Not only this, but all learners will have the benefit of joining England’s largest community of trained MHFAiders®, through the dedicated MHFAider Support App®, providing exclusive resources and ongoing learning - 24/7!
Become an MHFAider® today and help to improve the mental health of the nation.
