What is MHFA?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course that teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and provide help on a first aid basis.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. The 2 Day MHFA course is delivered by me, a  quality assured instructor who has attended MHFA England's Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and I am trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.
