Equip your employees with the skills and knowledge to create a mentally healthy workplace with this award-winning Mental Health First Aid certification course.

mental health first aid certification course

This award-winning certification course for Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is similar to a physical first aid course.

Using an action plan, your employees will learn how to provide initial support to someone whose mental health is declining or are in a mental health crisis.

Course participants will:

 Gain confidence and skills to notice signs of poor mental health
 Learn what to say to a colleague with mental health problems

 Learn how to refer to professional help when needed

This course offers the option for employees to gain a certification in Mental Health First Aid.

The MHFA certification lasts for three years. Employees can then attend our MHFA refresher course to renew for another three years.

Many workplaces choose to recognise MHFAiders officially within the workplace as MHFA Officers.

The standard Mental Health First Aid certification course is for employees aged 18+.
