Adult 2 Day Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid

2 Day Online Course

We also offer this course in a Face to Face format.

 About this course

This is a 2 day online and face to face course for all adults who want the knowledge and practical skills to support team members, colleagues in work, at home and outside in our communities.


Learning takes place through interactive sessions, video, and each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.


The two day course certifies you as a Mental Health First Aider, giving you:


  • 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


We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for all adults, Line managers and staff who want to gain the necessary skills to have a non-judgmental conversation, recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and resources for help and support.


This is not a counselling or therapeutic session, purely around awareness so you can feel more empowered to help someone else.


We look forward to welcoming you.
