2018 - 2019 programme schedule

Adult MHFA Instructor Training is currently in very high demand. To accommodate this we have scheduled more cohorts than usual, but for the rest of 2018 we will be unable to add any further dates than those listed below.

On 1st October 2018 we will be releasing training dates for January - March 2019. If you are interested in applying for Adult MHFA Instructor Training, please check back then to view these programme dates and locations.


Our Instructor Training programme costs £2,790 (inc VAT) per person, as of April 2018.

This includes:

  • Seven days training

  • All training materials

  • Access to instructor dashboard area of our website

  • One year of mentor support

Instructor Training extension programmes cost £1,626 (inc VAT) per person - this is for existing instructors who would like to qualify to deliver another MHFA Two Day product.

How to apply
  1. Download and read the following two documents:

  1. Download and complete an application form. On the form, indicate your first and second choices of programme from the list below.

  2. If you are sponsored by your organisation, complete an employer support letter.

  3. Send your completed application form, along with your employer support letter if you need one, to training@mhfaengland.org. In the email subject line, put the course code of your first choice of programme from the list below.

We'll review your application and once it is approved we'll be in touch to offer you a place on the programme. 

On the first day of the programme you will need to bring:

  • Photo ID

  • Proof of address - either a bill or a bank statement

Please note

The MHFA England Instructor Training programme qualifies you to deliver one of our Two Day products only (Adult, Youth, or Armed Forces).

Once you have been fully signed off as an approved instructor in your chosen Two Day product (and have completed two codeliveries as part of your sign off process), you will then have the option to attend an upskill session to add One Day and Half Day courses to your range.

You can also upskill to deliver Higher Education MHFA One Day courses, or attend an extension programme to qualify in another Two Day product other than the one you initially qualified in. For more information, see 'Applying for an extension' below.

Applying for an extension

If you're already an MHFA instructor and want to add another course to your portfolio, you don't have to do the whole programme again - you can simply apply for an extension. You will need to complete the first 3-5 days of the relevant course.

  1. Download and fill in the extension application form. On the form, indicate your first and second choices of programme from the list below.

  2. Send your completed extension application form to training@mhfaengland.org, putting the course code of your first choice of programme in the email subject line. We'll be in touch to offer you a place.


Our training team are happy to help answer any questions you might have about becoming an MHFA instructor or about your application.
