Our intensive Higher Education mental health awareness and skills course was created in consultation with leading student mental health charity Student Minds. It was piloted in 16 universities and evaluated by the University of Chester.
This one day course trains people as Higher Education MHFA Champions, giving them:
A deeper understanding of the issues that relate to student and staff mental health
Skills to spot early signs of mental ill health
Confidence to signpost someone to support – whether that’s through self-help resources, university counselling services, the NHS, or a mix
Knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness
We value this course at £200 per person. Costs may vary depending on location and instructor.
One day face-to-face course
Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities
We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn
Everyone who completes the course gets:
A certificate of attendance to say they are a Higher Education MHFA Champion
A Higher Education MHFA manual to refer to whenever they need it
