Become an accredited Mental Health First Aider and learn how to provide initial support to those who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis – invaluable in and out of the workplace

Most people know that mental health problems are common and disabling. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidence based first aid course which, like traditional first aid, teaches an easy to remember 'Action Plan' (ALGEE) which can be drawn upon when providing support.
