                      How will I learn?

                      The Adult MHFA course usually takes place over one full day.

                      The sessions will be a mix of presentations, discussions, and group work activities. Our instructors provide a safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don’t feel comfortable joining in certain parts, then there is no pressure to.

                      Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some parts particularly difficult.

                      Everyone who attends the course will receive a copy of the MHFA manual and workbook, which are both excellent support resources. When you have completed the course you will receive a certificate to confirm that you are a trained Mental Health Champion.

                      Who can attend?

                      The course is for everyone aged 16 and upwards and you don’t need any qualifications or experience in mental health to take part.
