Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Excellence Centre
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

What is Mental Health First Aid?
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.
Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal
Society for Public Health and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.
