About this course

What to expect

We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. 

The day includes a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. You will get an MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever you need it.

When you complete the day you'll get a certificate to say you are an MHFA Champion. 


“The course helped me to understand what I have done well in the past (when my work colleague experienced mental ill health) but also gave me ideas for how I can improve the way I support people in future.”
