Mental Health First Aid England

Mental Health First Aid is an educational course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be developing a mental health issue. In the same way as we learn physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health.

Developed in Australia in 2000 and now internationally recognised in 23 countries, the MHFA course teaches people how to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, provide help on a first aid basis and effectively guide someone towards the right support services. 

To date we have trained over 1200 instructors in England who have delivered the MHFA courses to over 100,000 people.

We also offer in-house training directly to large organisations through MHFA Workplace and consultancy to suit individual customer’s needs.

We continually develop our training products to keep them at the cutting edge of research and best practice. Our robust quality assurance processes ensure that instructors deliver training of the highest quality.
