Mental Health First Aid Training

Adult Mental Health First Aid Manual

You are probably aware that, should you become ill or injured whilst at work or out and about, there may be a first aider nearby to help you but have you have ever considered a mental health first aider?


When somebody needs help because of a physical illness or injury there are lots of people who are ready to step in and help, yet when we see someone showing signs of emotional distress they are all too often left to fend for themselves.


What if, at that moment that person was feeling so desperate that they were considering ending their life because they can see no viable alternative?


Now imagine if you had the skills and the confidence to make all the difference to this person by taking some very simple actions because taking the time to ask “can I help?” really can save a life.


Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.


MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. 


Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.


On this excellent 2 day training course you will learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health issue.
  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health issue.
  • Provide help on a first aid basis.
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others.
  • Help stop a mental health issue from getting worse.
  • Help someone recover faster.
  • Guide/signpost someone towards the right support.
  • Reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

MHFA999 provide high quality first aid training courses in a professional and flexible way with courses available to suit you and your organisation.


The courses we deliver are the Adult, and the Armed Forces MHFA which were created by Mental Health First Aid England.
