This internationally recognised 2-day (in-person) and ONLINE (4-sessions of 3 hours each) course which is similar to physical First Aid, provides the non-expert with comprehensive knowledge of the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and the confidence to intervene, both in crisis situations and in general.

MHFA is valuable in providing information on a range of mental health problems, along with reducing stigma and encouraging early intervention.

MHFA does not intend to train people to become therapists, but to provide the non-expert with knowledge of the first signs and symptoms of a range of mental health problems, and the confidence to intervene when a problem is observed – in the same way that they might in physical First Aid programmes.

MHFA aims to have Mental Health First Aid knowledge embedded into organisations.

The MHFA First Aider course (either in-person or online) is ideal for HR practitioners, managers, employees, volunteers or anyone with an interest in mental well-being. 

All delegates will receive the MHFA Manual, Workbook and attendance certificate included in the price. 

The aims of MHFA are:

  • To pre-empt work related stress, anxiety and depression
  • To prevent mental health problems becoming more serious
  • To promote recovery
  • To provide support to an employee experiencing mental health problems
  • To raise awareness of mental health problems in the community and in the workplace
  • To reduce stigma and discrimination
  • To preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others

Cost

MYB are able to offer places for £290 per person. For company based course, the group sizes should be of 8 to 12/16.  For the MYB Open to Public courses, the same price applies with only one person needing to book (there may be up to around 15 others on your course).  MHFA England value the course at £300pp.
