Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)
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; it won’t teach you to be a therapist, but will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. To date, over 206,000 people have taken an MHFA course, whilst statistics show that one in four people in the UK will experience at least one diagnosable mental health issue in any one year.
