MHFA is now also available as an online offering. The learning outcomes are exactly the same as the face-to-face 2-day accreditation programme.
In order to be classed as a full-on Mental Health First Aider, learners need to complete some pre and post session reading, and attend 4 online workshops where we cover the main mental health disorders before applying a 5-step action plan.
The MHFA course will teach you to:
Content for the delegates split between individual learning (which the delegates will log into the MHFA England learning hub to complete the sessions, the trainer will provide the link to log in in advance), and live instructor-led training.
FAQs Platform: The preferred means of delivery is through the MHFA Enabley learning hub but Zoom, Teams etc could be used also
Course materials: All delegates will receive the usual manual, workbook in advance of the session, with the electronic certificate emailed to them following successful attendance of all 4 sessions
Registration: Once a date is confirmed, the delegate will be registered via the MHFA England website, a link will be sent and the delegates will need to individually register onto the course (takes 30 seconds)
Four mandatory face-to-face sessions are hosted each month (please see the dates below). Every session must be attended to successfully complete the course. Please ensure that you are able to attend all sessions before confirming your interest.
Please get in contact for further details and date confirmations.
Barton and Willmore – ‘The MHFA training was fantastic. All of the delegates found the training very informative. It used lots of useful resources, techniques, case studies and models to enable us to understand how to best signpost employees in times of need. Our trainer was great and made the sessions really engaging and personable.’
