As the sole provider of licensed Mental Health First Aid Instructor Training in England, our programme is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health. Find out how to become an Instructor Member below.

To apply for Adult or Youth MHFA Instructor Training you must have completed a Mental Health First Aider course (online or face-to-face) in the same subject area of Adult or Youth within the last three years.

We are reviewing our membership network and the ways we provide training. At this time we are unable to accept applicants who are looking to be independent trainers or are employed by training companies. We are only able to accept applicants who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Applying to deliver MHFA England training to other employees in your own workplace

  • Part of a cohort commissioned by an industry body, charity, or other organisation, or sponsored by MHFA England

  • Applying to deliver training as an individual, or as part of a non-profit or community organisation, working primarily to support Black people and/or People of Colour, in line with MHFA England’s commitment to anti-racism. If you have any questions about this or if you are unsure whether this applies to you, please contact and we would be happy to discuss further with you.
