Become a Mental Health First Aider

Buckinghamshire Mind is offering a two-day Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training course which will teach you (and your organisation) how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

The Adult MHFA Two Day course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider.

Mental Health First Aiders have:

  • An in depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing
  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress
  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening
  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

You will also get an up to date comprehensive MHFA manual and a Mental Health First Aider certificate.

No prior knowledge of mental health is necessary.
