Course description

Mental Health First Aid is a two-day course that teaches people to spot the symptoms of common mental health issues and recognise the early signs that someone may need support. By applying their training, students can help colleagues with a mental health issue receive the support they need to recover or manage their symptoms.

A trained Mental Health First Aider in your workplace can start productive conversations about mental health, be a role model for how to manage mental health, promote a greater understanding of the importance of mental health, and play a significant part in ending stigma and discrimination around mental health in the workplace.

We recognise that everyone is different, which is why we offer a choice of study routes.

You can attend a course at Live Online or we can deliver the course in your workplace.

Please note: The duration of the Live Online course displays below as 8 days because the 2-day course runs 1 day per week across a 2 week period. So for example, if the first day of the course is on a Monday, the second day will be held on the following Monday.  

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Recognise the symptoms of mental ill-health
  • Provide initial help
  • Guide the person towards appropriate professional help
  • Be mindful of their own wellbeing. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

People with good interpersonal skills who would like to support colleagues facing mental health issues, and improve understanding and attitudes towards mental health in the workplace.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon completion of the two-day course you will receive a Mental Health First Aid certificate from MHFA.
