Adult/WORKPLACE Mental Health First Aid Training (2 Day)

Course Information

With the current C-19 virus situation all in person courses are suspended to prevent large groups gathering together. However MHFA England are currently adjusting the materials to make the 2 + 1 day MHFA courses deliverable online via video conferencing software. MHFA999 LTD is one of those providers who will be approved to deliver in this way, so when the courses become available we will be setting new dates as soon as possible.

This excellent two day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider in the workplace/community, giving you:

  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect well-being.
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues.
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress.
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening.
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix.

The usual cost of our open access courses is £220 +VAT (£264 INC) per person and would normally  includes all learner materials, tea/coffee, & lunch. Due to the current situation with the C-19 virus we are delivering the course for a reduced cost of £190 +VAT (£228 INC) to reflect the fact that we are not paying for a physical venue and refreshments.

Costs for in-house training for  your organisation can be requested by e-mailing us via:
