Course Information

Mental Health First Aid

The Mental Health First Aid Two Day course from MHFA England teaches people to recognise the signs that someone may need support with their mental health and offer help on a first aid basis.

A trained Mental Health First Aider in your workplace can start productive conversations about mental health, be a role model for how to manage mental health, promote greater understanding of the importance of mental health, and play a significant part in ending stigma and discrimination around mental health in the workplace.
Who Should Attend?
