Mental Health First Aid starts with you
Just like physical first aid, we recommend that Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions attend a Refresher course each year. Just like physical first aid, updating skills and knowledge allows people to perform this vital role confidently and safely. So, if it’s been a while since you trained, book onto the MHFA Refresher now and feel confident that you are performing your vital role safely.
MHFA England’s Two Day and One Day courses are valid for three years. If it’s more than three years since you completed your initial course, it’s time to redo your training.
The four hour Refresher course will support your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions by:
- Renewing their skills
- Updating their knowledge of mental health supports
- Giving them the chance to practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan
Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities enabling your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions to refresh their skills, the same way your physical first aiders do, is a great way to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to treating mental health and physical health equally. Investing in the course will give you the confidence that your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions are performing their role safely and effectively.
Learners who complete the course successfully will receive a course manual and certificate issued by Mental Health England.
Each and every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor, who has attended and passed the rigorous seven-day instructor training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.
We limit numbers to 25 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.
