The eagerly awaited Mental Health First Aid England redeveloped course has been launched.

Book yourself onto one of our Cambridgeshire classroom courses to qualify as an MHFAider®

We have now delivered the new programme face to face a couple of times since its launch in September 2022, and look forward to training many more MHFAiders in 2023.

The course will equip Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAiders®) with the knowledge and skills to spot signs of a person experiencing poor mental health, the confidence to be able to support themselves and others, and support to feel empowered and motivated to carry out their role.

Not only this, but all learners will have the benefit of joining England’s largest community of trained MHFAiders®, through the dedicated MHFAider Support App®, providing exclusive resources and ongoing learning – 24/7!

Become an MHFAider® today and help to improve the mental health of the nation.

What is the main difference between the MHFAEngland original two day Adult programme and the new MHFAiders® course?

Quite a lot, and we really like the changes. It’s made all the work required to get up to speed with the new format, feel so worth while.

There is a lot less focus on disorders, and a great deal more on the practical skills required to be a Mental Health First Aider. After all, we are not training anyone to become a therapist and make a diagnosis, we are trying to equip our learners with a set of accessible knowledge and skills.

The new redeveloped course provides plenty of opportunity to practice these skills. Learners take an in-depth look at what active listening really means, and how MHFAiders® can mange their own boundaries and selfcare in order to deliver the best support to others.

This new redeveloped course also comes with a benefits package including the MHFAider Support App®.

The reality is that if you want to know about the disorders anyone can look this up in the World Health organisations International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) or the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). To make a diagnosis you need to many years of training.
