An introductory course, the MHFA Adult Mental Health Aware course is fitted into just 4 hours. The online course may be divided into two sessions or we will allow up to 5 hours for training to incorporate a break for the group.  Through interactive and thought-provoking exercises and a dynamic presentation, the session aims to give a basic understanding of  the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, to challenge attitudes, and reduce stigma. It will also help people to feel more confident in dealing with and supporting people who suffer from mental ill health. There is ample opportunity for questions and all delegates receive a certificate, manual and workbook.


MHFA REFRESHER Course: up to 25 people (max 16 online)

Cost:  £110 per person (minimum 8 people)

Having become a Mental Health First Aider (2-day in-person) or Champion (1-day in-person), you will have already learnt the skills to support those around you.  The course is four hours in-person, with the online course either available as one session of four to five hours or divided into two sessions. At the end of this Refresher course you will have learnt to:

- Keep your awareness of mental health support current
- Update your knowledge of mental health and what influences it
- Practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan

Note that this course is only suitable for those who have completed a One or Two Day course.
