• MHFA action planning 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. This course will not teach you to be a therapist, but similar to physical first aid, you will learn to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA England course:

• Raises awareness and mental health literacy.

• Reduces stigma around mental ill-health.

• Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues.

• Promotes early intervention which enables recovery.

ACCREDITED BY Mental Health First Aid England. On completion of the course you will receive an MHFA certificate.
