  • Level 3 Ofqual qualification, internationally recognised (+£95+VATpp)

About the Programme

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.

You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.

By becoming an MHFAider® with us you’ll have access to continuous support – well beyond your initial certification – so you are confident, empowered and motivated to carry out your role.  You will get three years’ access to MHFAider® support and benefits which includes 24/7 digital support through the MHFAider Support App®. From there, you will find exclusive resources, ongoing learning opportunities and the benefit of joining England’s largest community of trained MHFAiders®.

About the Qualification

The internationally recognised RSPH Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aid will give you a chance to demonstrate your commitment to the role and test your knowledge as an MHFAider® with an eAssessment.

The Mental Health First Aid qualification is the only one of its kind to be endorsed and supported by the world’s oldest public health body, Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH).

Like RSPH, MHFA England share the belief that mental health is a public health issue. By partnering with them they have created a market leading Ofqual regulated MHFAider® qualification, that upholds the commitment to quality. Together we can all have a positive impact on the mental health of the nation and make a lasting difference. To workplaces. To individuals. And to society.
