Mental Health First Aider training course in February

Monday, February 13, 2023 - Friday, February 24, 2023 Online

Mental Health First Aider training course in February through MHFA England.

I did this course back in 2021. I would highly recommend everyone doing this course if they get the chance, even if it is only for yourself. You will learn what poor mental health entails and may recognise it in yourself and/or others, together with learning so much about yourself and your potential to be there for others.

This course is ideal for individuals who would like to become an MHFAider® to gain the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health, be confident to start a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support. Train to be a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider®) and receive three years of certification, plus access to ongoing benefits.   

The course will be run over 4 dates:

Monday 13th February 9.30am – 1.30pm (4 hours) – Session 1
