What is MHFA
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. It is currently the only accredited Mental Health training in England -accredited by The Royal Society of Public Health.
Adult 2 day MHFAider courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. As a quality assured instructor who has attended the Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, I am trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.
The course raises awareness and mental health literacy, reduces stigma around mental ill health, boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues and promotes early intervention.
I deliver courses face to face and online. I facilitate public courses which are available to individuals who want to do the training and I also facilitate courses that are 'in-house' for organisations who have 8 or more people wanting to attend the course.
Each learner receives an in depth manual and on completion of the course, a certificate and access to our 24/7 support App for 3 years. There is also the opportunity to progress to gain an ofqual regulated PSPH Level 3 award.

Whilst there is a lot to take in, I thought the course was excellent at helping us understand the basics and giving us confidence to now respond in the best way possible to someone who is struggling with their mental health. Also a great variety of learning - films, reading, group exercises etc I thought Pippa was excellent - it's very hard delivering courses online and she did a great job.
Great refresher -feel more confident in my skills. Great to have the App as backup and for signposting. Pippa was great and we had a lovely group.
The course content I found absolutely essential for me, and for any other people who work in any similar support role; I wish I had completed this years ago. I will take so much from this- it has given me confidence in my daily life, and not just with work, but with supporting family, friends, work colleagues and also myself. I have used some of my new knowledge daily several times this week, which shows how relevant this course is in my life. It has also caused me to reflect upon my own self care, which has been lacking since lockdown. and I have started to address this already. Excellent presenter- great pace, great skills. Very impressed.
Fab course! It should be compulsory for all people working with young people.
Cannot fault the course or instructor
Really excellent course. It was very interesting and varied in course delivery. Pippa made everyone really comfortable and welcome. The course will be really helpful.
I found the course extremely informative. The pace was good and the instructors were professional and supportive. Great resources too. I will definitely recommend this course
This Youth MHFA course contains a lot of useful information. It was very well presented. With the increase in mental health issues generally it is important for these courses to continue. There was a lot of things to go through and this was made possible by the excellent leadership of the instructor. Thanks very much Pippa.
