Mental Health First Aid Courses

Mental Health First Aid

Why do a MHFA England course?

Our courses are internationally recognised and accredited by the Royal Society of Public Health. Everything within the courses is based on research and has been developed alongside clinical practitioners to produce the best evidence-based training courses available.

1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem each year, 1 in 6 experience a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) each week and in recent years, poor employee mental health has cost UK employers around £42 billion.

Did you know?

How do we help?

Through education and training we raise awareness and teach practical skills around mental health. In particular, ensuring everyone knows what mental health is, how to spot the signs and symptoms of poor mental health and knowing where they, and others, can get help. Doing this means that people are more likely to recognise problems and proactively seek help before the issue becomes more serious. This change often results in an estimated 500% Return on Investment (ROI) by reducing things like absence, presenteeism and staff turnover. Once trained, Mental Health First Aiders and Mental Health Champions are able to use the practical skills and knowledge taught during our courses to provide that much needed early intervention and help to others.

Furthermore, since MoreMentalHealth was founded, we have trained hundreds of learners, many of which maintain contact with us and have some fantastic things to say.

I feel more confident to help someone, knowing the steps and the technique I could use.I feel more comfortable, and my view of mental health illness also changed. I’ve got a better understanding of the symptoms and the effects on people’s lives. We should give everybody an MHFA course as physical first aid—starting in high school and any company.”
