Mental Health First Aid Standard 


Our MHFA Standard Course is split up into 4 manageable chunks across 2 days.

  1. What is Mental Health
  2. Suicide
  3. Anxiety & Depression
  4. Psychosis


Each delegate will learn-

  • how to feel confident about helping someone experiencing a mental health problem;
  • how to provide them with help on a first aid basis;
  • how to help someone from hurting themselves or others;
  • how to stop mental illness from getting worse;
  • how to help someone to recover faster

You will also receive guidance on how to get someone to the right support and the course aims to reduce the stigma attached to mental health.  

The course is delivered in groups of up to 16 people and delegates receive a certificate and manual with further information and resources.
