" Without doubt the best training course I have ever attended. Andy's experiences and commitment to training Mental Health First Aiders is what made this course what it was. I personally had high expectations of the quality of the course prior to attending, I was not disappointed one little bit. I cannot speak highly enough of Andy and recommend anyone considering training to be a first aider use MHFA999. You will not be disappointed".


MHFA999 was created by our founder and head trainer Andy Graham following a 30 year career as a fire-fighter in Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service and 3 years in the British Army prior to that.

Andy developed a huge passion for delivering high quality training in both physical and mental health first aid due his personal experiences in the emergency services and the armed forces.

As a fire-fighter he has performed first aid and initial trauma care on countless people in real emergency situations, and in addition to this has lived with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and associated depression as a result of the more serious incidents which he attended.

Andy attempted suicide on several occasions as a result of his condition but thankfully he survived and is now in full recovery .

Now he uses his personal experiences to bring his training courses to life for our delegates and to make sure that all our courses are delivered to the highest standards so we guarantee that you will have the very best training experience possible which no matter which of our training courses you choose to attend.
