Course overview

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. MHFA wonโ€™t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis โ€“ and even potentially stop a crisis from happening. Youโ€™ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.
