About this Event

Course Overview

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.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.

You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.

** Please note, although this is an online course, we will dispatch printed workbooks and course guides. Please provide an accurate shipping address on booking .**


The Online Mental Health First Aid course is interactive and delivered through slides, video clips, activities, discussion and case studies which you will explore through individual learning activities and a series of live sessions.

Individual learning will be based on a combination of videos, reading and activities. These can be done at your own pace in advance of each live session.

The live sessions are led by one of our instructors. You will be joined by up to 16 other participants who will be completing the course with you. Check details of the timings of each live session in your booking confirmation and make a note as these sessions will not be recorded of repeated.

Everyone who completes the course gets a certificate from MHFA England to say they are a Mental Health First Aider.
