What is Mental Health First Aid Training?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is nationally recognised training. Employees can undertake it to compliment your company’s overall wellbeing strategy – whether that be in conjunction with our Dorset Mind Works Packages or in isolation. Additionally, it provides all attendees with a deeper insight and understanding of mental health.

As an approved Mental Health First Aid Instructor Member, we offer an online evidence-based interactive digital learning course that helps to raise awareness and develop skills. Our course empowers people to notice signs of mental ill health, and encourage them to break down barriers, listen in a non-judgemental way, and signpost to support for recovery.
