What is Mental Health First Aid?

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

At MHFA England we offer a range of courses tailored for people who teach, work, live with and care for young people aged 8 to 18. The courses can be attended by anyone from age 16 upwards. Each and every MHFA England course is delivered by a quality assured instructor.
