The Mental Health First Aid Introduction is a half day course (4 hours) designed to raise awareness of mental health.
Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. We limit numbers to 25 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.
Everyone who completes the course gets:
- An MHFA manual to refer to whenever they need it
- A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support their own mental health
- A certificate of attendance to say they are Mental Health First Aid Aware
Typical learning outcomes
