This two day Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course teaches you strategies and techniques to help support someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is sought. MHFA won't teach you how to be a therapist, but once you’ve completed the two-day course you will be able to say you're a Mental Health First Aider.
