MHFA England course 

what is mhfa?

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

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. The online MHFA course is delivered by me, a  quality assured instructor who has attended MHFA England's Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and I am trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

What will I learn?

This is an online course delivered through the MHFA England Online Learning Hub by Jamie Forsyth, as an experienced Mental Health First Aider with personal experience of mental ill-health, his passion and experience really gives the content of the course that extra bit of credibility and shows how it can help peoples lives


Learning takes place through four live training sessions, spread across two weeks, with self-learning activities in between. Each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan

A practical skills and awareness course designed to give you:

  • A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing Including your own

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
