Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised education and training programme with a core mission of raising mental health awareness in the general population. 

MHFA England’s core aim is achieved by delivering quality assured training programmes that are tried and tested and underpinned by regional, national and global research and evaluation.

I hold regular open training sessions throughout the area or, if you prefer, I can come to your organisation and provide delivery in-house.  As we cover a number of highly emotive issues, delegate numbers are restricted to enable me to ensure the well-being of those attending. Early booking is highly recommended.
