About the Event

Gain a Level 3 Qualification in Mental Health First Aid on our 2-day course. We warmly welcome you to join us to learn the skills and knowledge so you can spot the signs of people experiencing poor mental health, whether that be colleagues, clients, or family and friends. You will be confident to start a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support.

More and more employees are experiencing mental health challenges in the workplace. This course will not only allow you to become part of the largest mental health first aid community in England but also grant you access to resources, ongoing learning, and 24/7 support through our Support App. Additionally, you will receive complimentary 121 supervision from one of our qualified leaders. This course will add weight to your current skills and attributes and enhance your own understanding of how you can work in a team to support your clients and/or colleagues more effectively and confidently.

MHFA England training is a key component for creating a healthy workplace where the mental health and physical health of employees are valued equally. It gives people the tools to support their own mental health and that of their colleagues and encourages them to access timely support when needed.
