Mental First Aid Health England

A web design client of mine who does First Aid mentioned that he is training in Mental Health First Aid to supplement the physical first aid courses he offers. I was excited to find out more about this initiative, and very pleased to see that MHFA is a social enterprise, a company without shareholders.

We are Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England. We are a social enterprise, a company without shareholders. We offer expert guidance and training to support mental health, in the workplace and beyond.

Our mission is to train one in ten people in mental health awareness and skills.

Through our training and campaigning, we equip people with the skills they need to support their own and others’ wellbeing.

We offer a range of evidence-based face to face and digital learning, from awareness raising to skill development. Our courses empower people to notice signs of mental ill health, and encourage them to break down barriers, listen in a non-judgemental way, and signpost to support for recovery.

There are a variety of resources on the MHFA website and I’m saving up to do the 2-day training course!
