Overview

Our one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies you as an MHFA Champion.

MHFA Champions have: 

We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. 

Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, the course is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Everyone who completes the course gets an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it, and a certificate to say they are an MHFA Champion.

You’ll also get a copy of the Line Managers' Resource, an invaluable source of advice on how to support an employee experiencing mental ill health.
